Samba configuration tends to be specific to your particular circumstances, so it can be difficult to suggest a particular setup which will work for you. Take a look at some of the following howto guides:

http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/

Especially, read the section called 'Fast Start', which should hopefully get you up and running pretty quickly.

Hope this helps.
