For Linux the package is called samba. It's available ftp at sunsite.unc.edu ot tsx-11.mit.edu. It also comes as an add on with most cdrom sets.
Samba lets any microsoft client use Linux as a file/print server. Win95, NT, Windows for Workgroups and the DOS client for WFW all work. I've actually used NT, Win95, and WFW.
The HOWTO is pretty good and the docs will get you up and running.
One important note - the file access from Linux to the Windows world is a basic FTP type setup. As of the last release of samba I used Linux could not mount microsoft servers as shares.
Since samba is a constant work in progress this may change.
