is there a built in file sharing for linux or unix systems, that is not Samba / Windows based, just for sharing files between 'nix systems? And is sharing in this way supported by gnome and other desktop GUIs? I'm using ubuntu.

You can also share files through SSH, which is secure.
Read up on NFS exports. I don't think they're terribly secure (use Samba!) but they do the job.
