yes you can use the SAMBA service to share out your linux as a file sharing server. have a look here http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/using_samba/toc.html
Also the new version of samba version 3.x you can make it as AD server as win2k.

Yes, once you setup your samba service correctly, you can login from M$ windoz and in your windoz browser you can find the linux box and the shared folder for you to access. and the 1st url have the procedure to setup the samba server, also have the sample config files you can learn.

For login there is many way, once is setup the username in the samba server (linux box) with useradd and smbpasswd, or using your win2k as a login server. once the login setting make good you can login from your any windoz and access the linux server.
