SAMBA server and Configuration file

SAMBA server and Configuration file :

When we get connect with two systems.Suppose one system is running with Linux operating system and another one is running with Windows OS.

I need to connect it but it didn't response me because it occur some dependencies error and need to provide these dependency.The Linux follow the FAT with ext2 and ext3 file system where as the Windows always follow the NTFS file system and connection difference has also differ from each other.

Due to this concept ,the samba comes in the feature which provides the connection between both computers.
