After configuring the smb.conf file to share the appropriate directories you
need to do 2 more things
1) make sure the UNIX file permissions are set on the appropriate
directories and it's contents
chown -R user:group /some/directory/path
chmod -R 700 /some/directory/path
2) create/edit the smbpasswd file and add users as needed
smbpassswd -a user
Best of luck

Subject: [Samba] samb.conf
I'm very new to linux, I'm using Linux 8.0, seemed very easy to configure at
first, but I'm having trouble configuring how to connect to my computer
using linux from my computer using windows98. I see the Mygroup Icon in
NetworkNeighborhood and also my user name, but when I click on it, it says
to provide a password. I use my user password from linux but no avail.
Somewhere I read where you can configure the smb.conf file, but I'm not sure
what editor to use or what kind of chmod command to put on it or anything.
I read the help file and it refers me to something called swat, but there
isn't any reference to it.
Can anyone help? Thanks.
