As someone else pointed out: samba is most likely the way to go.

As digikam may be able to use mysql (i have not used it), I have all 
my photos on a server (NFS from linux and samba from windows clients). 
As I don't like my digikam database altered by someone else than me, 
my children and my wife have to use their own digikam database. All 
user data are stored on the server as well, so the data are consistent 
between windows and linux. With this every user can rate their 
pictures to their own needs (as long they do not store the metadata 
into the photos - which is forbidden by file access for most photos I 

But I must confess: my wife usually order me to pick some photos 
instead of doing it herself. So to about 99% I am the only one working 
on photos.
