Definitely go for the 512M. OS X will work in 256, but everything will 
be faster & more stable in 512.

40G will be fine unless you have a lot of music or plan to do a lot of 
video editing.

Yes, in the System Preferences (Mac's equivalent to Control Panels), 
you go to Sharing and turn on Windows sharing which activates Samba and 
shows you the address to use to connect from Windows. Going to Windows 
is even easier, as the Shared Docs folders just appear in the Network 
browser.

Any more questions, feel free to ask directly :-)

Cheers,
Sarah
