*Some questions about "SettingUpSamba":  "mount your share" - is that 
the folder that I have share for everyone on my network?
I am quoting 

Change the permissions on the file for security:

    chmod 0600 /etc/Samba/user

Now create a directory where you want to mount your share (e.g. 
/mnt/data): */my question: does it mean that /data is the name of the 
folder where I will put all the files I will like to share?*

    mkdir /mnt/data

This is the next step:
Now edit the file system table (/etc/fstab) and add a line as follows:

    //server/share   /mnt/data   smbfs   
credentials=/etc/Samba/user,rw,uid=bob   0   0

where 'bob' is the non-root user you log into ubuntu with, 'server' is 
the name or address of the Windows machine and 'share' is the name of 
the share.
