Enabling Samba in Ubuntu.

You can use Synaptic Package Manager to install samba, or in a console, 
type "sudo aptitude", then find samba (type "/" then "samba" then "\" 
until you find it, then "i" to install, then "g" to go for it, and "g" 
again... jeez, I think I just realised why people don't like aptitude ;-).

I think it will work as soon as you install it. You may need to tweak 
/etc/samba/smb.conf till it's just right for you.
