[Samba] Newbie: Simple Samba Configuration

I've tried to install and get samba working twice already and I have no idea 
what the heck is going wrong, at the same time my PC was re-formated so I 
know all the old configurations are gone. I installed samba-2.2.3a-6 from the 
redhat 7.3 CDs and want to take another crack at it. I was wondering if 
either somebody could re-direct me to a VERY SIMPLE, NEWBIED configuration 
guide for samba or perhaps help me by going through the process step-by-step 
through an IM client or IRC or something. The second would really be prefered 
cause I've already found and used two "newbie guides" to samba and both 
didn't work for me. I don't want anybody to do the work for me, I just want 
someone to walk me through it and if something goes wrong they can know what 
steps I took, and what ones I didn't OR if the guides are wrong so I won't 
make a mistake in the first place.

As for arrangement of meeting online, just email me back off the list and we 
can talk about the when and where, I have AIM, Yahoo, ICQ and I'm familiar 
with IRC... 

Please help me out, I'd really appreciate it!
