You don't really have to use !!!!! to get help. There is nothing to panic
Likely, you are a new user of linux. Likely, you don't know anything about
permissions and the like, so, I would try the following:
Make up a simple smb.conf, which doesn't involve passwords:
Here is what I do for mine:
netbios name = JHAMMER6
server string = Samba %v Your Server
security = SHARE
guest account = ftp
read only = No
guest ok = Yes
comment = Root directory
path = /
create mask = 0766
I think this will let anyone log on to your samba server as a user called
ftp has few privileges on your machine. You could make the guest account
some regular user name, just to try things out.
Anyway, you could make the path = some directory like /SambaShares and
chmod 777 /SambaShares (make sure /SambaShares exists).
That should allow everyone to read, write, execute, etc. off the drive.
Naturally, you will want to arrange things to be more secure in the future.
