Help me to build a fileserver!!!

  I want to build a small network using Linux as the fileserver and 
windows 95 computers as the clients. What I have in mind is something 
similar to what novell network do, but using Linux in the place of the 
novell server. I want to be able to map a linux partition in the server 
to work as a directory in the windows 95 computers. I tried to do that 
using the tcp/ip protocol but then I got realized that windows 95 do not 
have a client for UNIX networks using the tcp/ip protocol so, I have 
been unable to map.  

  I heard that Linux can to use  the IPX protocol. I think that maybe I 
can to configure  Linux to emulate a novell network server and then 
configure the windows 95 computers as novell network clients. I'm 
writing this letter because I want to know how to configure Linux as a 
novell server or any other server that windows 95 has client for. If 
that is not possible I will appreciate if you email me telling that is 
not possible. I will also thank any other suggest of how to use Linux as 
a fileserver for windows 95 computers. The only think I do not want to 
hear is that I have to open a UNIX shell in the windows computers in 
order to have access to Linux server. 

  If you help me to learn how to configure the fileserver with Linux 
then I will write a howto under the terms of GNU to help others newbies 
like me to that.

Thanks You.
