Here's a very basic smb.conf, this may get you going:

# Global parameters
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        server string = Samba Server
        security = SHARE
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        max log size = 0
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        load printers = No
        os level = 65
        preferred master = True
        domain master = True
        dns proxy = No
        wins support = Yes
        hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.
        printing = lprng

        comment = Stuff
        path = /home/samba
        read only = No
        create mask = 0777
        directory mask = 0777
        guest ok = Yes
        dos filemode = Yes


Basically, if you create a directory in /home called samba, and give it
permissions of 777 from Linux, all machines on your network should be able to
save files to it. This config is good for home use, not good for anything
secure. =)

Another thing to try before replacing your smb.conf with this one is do the
iptables -F
iptables -t nat -F

make sure your rulesets for your firewall are flushed, so you know its not a
firewall issue thats preventing you from connecting.

BTW: This is taken from Red Hat 7.2, runnign 2.2.5, so you should have the
necessary path for logs and such as specified in the config above already
