I don't think you can do setups, but if you have already installed something you can run it with an emulator such as wine. What you are talking about though, you don't need the windows setup. You are going to have to obtain samba if you don't already have it. You have to run the sambad(samba daemon) to share your files on linux with windows. To browse your windows shares you just install samba and follow these directions. I have the feeling that I completely misunderstood you and that this question is related to this. If I have the wrong idea please explain more.
