I'm trying to debug my major problem of not being able to set up my 
print server and decided to revert back to the very simplest of smb.conf 

         workgroup = arlington

         writable = yes
         public = yes

With this conf I can mount my user directory using another linux box but 
can not mount it with a win 95 machine either via command line or via 
the browser interface.  When connecting using browser interface I get a 
login box that has a pre defined setting that looks like this:

Resource:  \\FS1\IPC$

FS1 is the name of my samba box

in the same window is a password field.... no password on the system 
works here.

Why doesn't this work?

HELP PLEASE!!  I've never used SAMBA before!
