What do you want to achieve ?
Establishing an adhoc connection has nothing to do with Samba.
Set common essid and channel on both machines.
Give ip address to each machine. You should then be able to ping and
test the connection.
See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Adhoc for more details.
For configuring Win7, look up Win7 documentation.
