How can I create a file server (probably smb) so I can access a folder or drive from a windows computer on the same LAN?

Have you tried installing samba like this?

 sudo apt-get install samba

I Think this would solve your problem.

I did try samba after I posted this. I got it installed but I am having trouble configuring it from a CLI... I don't have a gnome installed because I'm just using the Pi as a media server for my PS3. I just want a way to add videos to it from my windows computer. –  kjmccarx Dec 29 '12 at 21:46
    
You don't need gnome, you just have to edit the samba configuration file /etc/samba/smb.conf . This post and this blog are helpful. –  Frepa Dec 29 '12 at 23:53
