Default Best place to start with SAMBA

Greetings Everyone,
I have built a headless server which is running Arch Linux.
I have 6 Computers on the network.
2 are Linux (Arch)and 4 are Windows 7 (Different variants)
I have installed the SAMBA suite on the server.
The Server has 2 hard drives. 1 sda1 is 20 GB and holds the OS, the other; sdb1 is a 500GB drive formated to NTFS. I have a Printer attached via USB to this server but no keyboard, mouse, or monitor.
I perform all updates to the server via SSH.
I simply want all 6 computers in the house to be able to save files to that 500 GB HDD in the server and print from the printer attached to that server.
I am trying to find out where to start? There is hundreds of links via Google for SAMBA, my problem is, I don't know if I am reading step 6 of the process or step 26. There are hundreds of various smb.conf examples out there, all in which are different of course. I will read the fine manual, I just need one that where I know I am on page 1 of chapter 1.
If you could point me in the right direction or if you are knowledgable with SAMBA and would like to provide me guidance, I would be most appreciative, and most patient.

All the best and thank you up front for any and all responses.

Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
