You want samba that will install the samba server on your computer,
samba lets windows users use shares that you publish.
You con configure it (and the workgroup) in "kcontrol" -> "Internet &
Network" -> "Samba"
if you don't know, to get in to kcontrol press Alt-F2 or Kmenu -> "Run
Command..." and type kcontrol
