    you need the SAMBA service. Search this site and you'll find a sample config.
    you also need to open port 139 and 445 on your private LAN ip address, but not on the WAN side.

    Doesn't need samba to share the internet..

    Just set the TCP/IP configuration on the Windows box to the same you have on the working Linux box (diferent IP address of course).
