I have laptop that dual-boots to Windows/Ubuntu and it is a pain to get files organized on both so I thought about using my mac mini which has ML and use that as a home server.

Is this possible and can you link me to a page where the process is explained or someone could please explain to me?

Certainly it's possible. Buy a copy of OS X Server from the app store, and you're off and running.

Here's Ars's take on it:

It's possible to do most of those things with free/open source software, but it's a lot more time and effort to set up that way.
