Can some one please help me to create a linux server?

I would like to create a home office network which operates the same as my collge network!

At college I can acess my personal area from any computer within the college network, I dont have a clue how this is done, but I do no that the server is running linux but the computer operating systmes are windows.

Please help as I am a novice.

Thanks in advanced

If you have "mapped drives" to a network resource, that is Samba running on those Linux boxes.
