Samba. You need to run Samba server on your fedora machine. That will make your fedora computer look like a windows machine - the windows users can access it just like another windows share on the network.

I've always found Samba to be tricky to set up, so you'll have to do some reading on it. It's a bit too intricate to discuss here (however if you install SWAT - the samba gui, you can administer and set it up through your browser).
