Here's a link to a nice pdf,

However for file and print server details I would recommend
reading the SAMBA howto's, especially if your going to use windows clients and want to share printer resources.  The site provides very nice howto's and here's another link directly for mandrake users.

I also recommend using webmin for administration. Makes life a lot easier for configuring things like Samba.
