Hi there New to list.

I'm trying to set up SMB so that I can r+w to files on a Linux Server running Mandrake 8.
I can see the Server over the network but when I try to access it  keeps asking for a password.

This is what I've done

smbadduser marcus:marcu
set the password 

restart smb
service smb restart

refreshed even reopened Network Neighborhood

It still ask me for a passwd
I type the passwd in but it does work.

Thanks In Advance
