You need to set up and enable Samba. At the least you'll want to run linuxconf and set a workgroup name and enable encrypted passwords before starting Samba. You'll also want to arrainge for Samba to be started at each boot (via linuxconf is the easiest way). To really understand what you are doing (and what you can/can't do) you ought to read through the documentation on Samba at http://www.samba.org.

hi.
you should tell what database you use. I know for oracle it is simple to install to linux server to be able to access it from other clients. Speaking of file server you should defenitly install samba unless you want to share NT applications. In that case I recomend you to install another NT server as a file server to share NT applications.

Malensek is quite correct about sharing applications to windows clients. While there are quite a number of apps that can reside on a Samba share and work correctly, there are a appreciable number that won't work from a Samba share.

You'll need to give the other two systems different hostnames (you can't have everyone with a hostname of "myhost1"). Also you'll want to add those IP's and hostnames to your /etc/hosts file. You appear to have basic connectivity between systems as you state that you can ping (by IP address I'd imagine) between systems, so the network card is configured and is working.

As to the other issues of sharing data and providing services, for the most part each of them reqires additional configuration steps. Most of the work can be done with linuxconf, and it's the easiest way to do so. There are a number of HowTo's at http://howto.tucows.com/howto.html, that will help in determining what you need to do and why. The "what and why" is at least to some degree site specific. We can provide solutions as to how to do a specific task, but we can't "design your network" for you. You have to decide what services you want to offer and how they should work based on what your exact needs are. And that means that you need to have at least some knowledge of what's avaialble and what it can do.
