Can anyone tell me (or point me to docs) that will give me the default drive/file sharing settings?  

I farkeled them up by trying to share between my PC and the iMac, never got the Mac to see the PC, never got the PC to login to the Mac, and now I want to reset everything.

To see the default settings just create a new user account in system preferences: users. You can login as this user abd then delete the account afterwards.

By default each users Public folder is shared with Owner read/write and everyone read-only permissions

There really is not much too the settings in Mac. Everything is off by default. As for sharing files between Mac and PC, check out this article from Apple.
