what kind of server? need more details on what you are trying to achieve. To me at least, i cant be sure if you are trying to share your network connection, host pages with php, or create samba shares to share files with other computers on the network

for file folder and drive sharing look at setting up samba also
remember linux can read a windows disk windows can not read a
linux disk windows can't even see it so samba will let you see a linux drive.

You need to specify exactly what sort of server.
A web server, to put web pages up-look into apache, with PHP and mysql, see LAMP servers

A file server to give files over internet-theres a few ways to do this, such as FTP and NFS, also possible with webservers

File sharing, to give files over LAN-see Samba, it's like the Linux version of windows network drives

I can help you out with Apache and web pages, but thats it. I need some help with samba.

samba is in the repository also i would run the server not the desktop you can always install x-window system if you need it
i am not the best person to ask about a web server there are people out there that could tell you a lot more i mostly deal with terminal server and file servers but read the link i sent in my last post that should get you on your way to setting up
a file server between linux and windows...:guitar:
