Samba is what you need to let your Linux box act as a Windows file share.
For file sharing between Linux boxes, in principle NFS is probably a good idea, but it takes some coordination between the computers to get it right. In some cases I have found it easier to just work with syncronized directories using Unison, which is available in Fedora Extras. (Besides, since the files are local, access is sometimes much faster than over a network.)

install smb from the server portion of your distro. edit the samba config file. start the service.
