FreeBSD & Windows XP possibilities (fileserver?)

Hello,
 
We have a little LAN with many Windows XP and some Linux PC's. Everything is running through a broadband router wich act as the switch for the LAN.
I have now an old PC with FreeBSD on it, can I use it to improve my network? I'm thinking of something like a fileserver? Are there other neat things that I can do?
To ensure Windows compability, should I use Samba (are there any good manuals/tutorials?)

Thanks.

Absolutley, you set up the server as a fileserver using samba, it can also perform domain controller functions.
