If you have Windows clients, you will need to install Linux and then Samba.

read up on the configuration of Samba. It can also be configured to work like a Domain server

Ubuntu would work just fine. If you're comfortable in the command line, Ubuntu Server would use less resources as well.

Samba would also have to be used, as mentioned, to share files to Windows-based rigs.
