Also how do I go about setting up a file/folder on my pc for sharing over the network? say I have a folder on this PC called "movies with a bunch of movies on it and want to share it with everyone on the network? How does I do that.

As the others said, you're better off to just build a fileserver/NAS to do this dirtywork. It'll be cheaper and way more efficient.
