If you're running OSX, follow this procedure to enable Samba for windows file sharing:

Classic MacOS does not support direct file sharing with Windows. j79zlr's method only turns on TCP/IP Routing (allowing internet access), but in no way allows LAN file sharing with windows. You would need a program such as PCMacLAN to share files to a MacOS 9 or older.
