What type of access do the windows clients need?  Samba allows you to integrate *nix OS's into a Windows network.  It's really SMB and NMB for *nix.  So if you want to see your Linux server in My Network Places on your desktop, use Samba.  MySQL is an ODBC compliant database, so datasources need to be configured to access the MySQL databases on the server.  Database connectivity and file access are handled very differently.  Please provide some more details.
