have a check here http://www.europe.redhat.com/documentation/HOWTO/SMB-HOWTO-7.php3 you will know how to share your linux for windows, and if you go to the top page of the manual, you will got the full picture of samba, and it's conifg files.

Also, you can use explore2fs  http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/explore2fs.htm to view the files in linux, but this is not the same as samba, samba is for files sharing, where as explore2fs is for exploaring the linux box.
