after trying the official Ubuntu samba guide and failing, then a youtube video guide and failing to make samba work, I am asking all of you which one is best as there are so many to choose from.
I tried ftp and nfs after these and got both to work, but found out ftp wasn't exactly a live system and windows 7 pro can't connect to nfs, so I have a good general feeling for configuration in general

I hope these help.
