Hi All,

I am having some trouble getting samba
to work. Any help and/or pointers would
be helpful. When I type: 

% smbclient -L localhost
I get:

 Sharename      Type      Comment
        ---------      ----      -------
        public         Disk      Public Stuff
        test           Disk      first test for samba
        IPC$           IPC       IPC Service (Samba Server on Caldera
        ps1            Printer

        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------

        Workgroup            Master
        ---------            ------- 
There is no Server, Comment, Workgroup or Master.
Where are these configured? In my smb.conf there is 
no mention of these items. Is there another file that 
I need to edit? Attached please find my smb.conf.

As Always
Thanks in Advance,
