No you dont have to install samba on the windows
client.You run testparm /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf
to see if smb.conf has no syntaks errors.
Then you must add users with the same username and
passwd as in linux.Type smbpasswd -a (username)
and give passwd when prompted for it.
Then run smbclient -Llocalhost
to see if you can see the shares.I attach my smb.conf
file which work and you can use if you get problems
with yours.Remember to replace the ip-addresses in
interfaces,remote announce and broadcast with the
values of your lan.
