I to think it is great you are demostrating this to the kids in your class.
I prefer to setup Samba under Webmin, it is a nice gui that makes since to windows users.
Basics of what you need to do:
Install Webmin www.webmin.com
Make a user / Set password (Best if it is the same username/password as your windows machine)
Make that user a samba user. (Best if it is the same username/password as your windows machine)
Set the samba security to user.
Share a folder. (Extra Credit)
When you login you will be able to see your home directory on the Linux box. On your windows box it maybe easier to disable windows firewall, unless you are going to run this for a while?
Email me and I will give you better answers when I know where you are at in the process.:)
