the configuration file is somewhere in /etc (e.g. /etc/samba/smb.conf). so there are different parts on it. firstly there are sections like [global]. global is special one, with options which are applied to every share, except they are overwritten there. so then you can make your own shares with [], that would be the name you can use in a windows (e.g. net use * \\\). for basic use the cfg-file could look like:

workgroup = WORKGROUP
create mask = 0644
directory mask = 0755

browseable = no
read only = no
path = /tmp

that gives you the opportunity to mount the tmp dir on a windows machine. also there are some other special shares like printers or homes. also you can allow/deny users, hosts, etc. due to a special notation (%S).
