1. IMHO tis question belongs to the samba mailing list
2. I would start by changing the smb.conf parameter log level to 10 (log
level = 10), then open up a terminal and do a 1. service samba restart
2. tailf /var/log/samba/log.YOURWINDOWSCOMPUTERHOSTNAME. Then go to the
windows box and try to open that share/folder. See if there is anything
useful in the log, if you can't see the reason please send the log file
with to the mailing list from 1.
P.S.: If a small delay (I'll be mostly off-line till Sunday) is not a
concern maybe I can also help you in Hungarian (my mother-tongue and
suppose yours as well) if that would help.
