Post your smb.conf file for starts and we can look at it and tell you
what's wrong. also how do you want to share? A free share for all to
write to and delete? Read only? Or do you want it to map to the users
home directory? they're all pretty easy. Easy to say since it took me
the better part of a week to figure it out.
