accesing linux from wint

I am guessing that you'd like to access a folder or share on Linux, the easiest way that I have found is using Webmin. This does 2 things, allow access to the linux box from a browser on any pc as well as having configuration of Samba settings, users, software, configurations, as well as just about any thing else. This is the greatest tool since the pc. There are some documentations at Webmin's website that also help with the settings for Samba shares.
