Use Samba and it is the same as for 95/98 (since you specified it, methinks you know how to alter the /etc/smb.conf file)

Do it w/ Samba! It should come w/ your RedHat distribution. You can also download the latest precompiled version as rpm from the samba website.
Here is a detailled book about samba configuration and win client setup:

good old O'Reilly quality as usual ;-) ....
For a quick glimpse just take a look at one of these:
