I need a file-sharing server
Maybe check out FreeNAS?
FreeNAS: The Free NAS Server - Home
Note that behind the scenes it is FreeBSD (not Linux) but that should be obfuscated from you by a web interface anyway.
It supports CIFS (samba) and along with the ISO for FreeNAS you can download a user guide.
This will act as a NAS device -- you'll still need to schedule backups from your Windows box to push the files there.
This looks interesting. So, it seems like it doesn't work through Debian at all. It's like a separate OS.
That's exactly right. (Maybe I misunderstood your first question.)
