recently i installed ubuntu 11.04 in my box
and my colleagues can't access my project files(/home/mokkai/projects) from their windows machine
i thing i have to share this (/home/mokkai/projects) folder with (Read/Write) permission to them.
my all projects in running under passenger/apache server(Web server)
i want to give Read/Write permission to my colleagues , because they can modify my projects content and they can access to see it in their browsers

which tool/software i have to install to solve this
like samba,sshfs,mount,ftp,afp,etc
which one will be good ?
can any one suggest me right direction

Thanks

I suggest Samba.
Here are some guides:

Good luck!
