I just want to set up a folder on my Linux 7.2 running samba 2.2.1a-4.  I
have looked at the smb.conf over and over.  Cannot find out why my share is
not showing up.  I just want users on my domain to browse the network and
read the folder.  I am on an NT domain and the furthest i got was seeing
the workgroup testgrp on my network neighborhood.  But when i click on the
workgroup i get an access denied msg.  I also \\<computername>\<share> and
it doesnt work.  Could someone look at my config file and see what is
missing or what im doing wrong.  I think maybe something is missing but
when i look at the description it doesnt apply to me.  This is pretty
streamline so if im missing a comment plz let me know. Trial and error is
really getting stale.  Any help would be great.
