This smb.conf obviously says you are new.
You have stuff in your global which seems to belong in shares.
It would be much better to start off with a very simple smb.conf.
Try something like this:
netbios name = smb
interfaces = 192.168.0.1 (or whatever yours is)
security = SHARE
guest account = ftp (make sure ftp exists on our linux box)
comment = All Files
path = /
read only = no
guest ok = yes
Then, run testparm against it. (I don't know if capital letters are a good
idea to use on the command line.)
Then, walk through the DIAGNOSIS.txt that comes with the sources.
If this works, then methodically add features, one at a time.
Don't forget to stop/start smbd each time you change the smb.conf.
You could just kill -1 samba_pid.
