My WinXP pro box is seeing the Samba server but I get the following
error when try to access the server.

\\Linux is not accessible.  Might not have permission to use this
network resource.  Contact the administrator to find out if you have
access permission.s

The network path was not found.

I have done a testparm on the smb.conf and all is OK.  I do have a unix,
samba and a windows user/password that are identical.  I can do a
smbclient on the xp box and see the shares at that end.

I currently have the following shares setup on Linux box.

Share Name	Path			Security

homes 		All Home Directories	Read/write to all known users
printers 	All Printers		Printable to everyone
public 		/home/samba/public	Read/write to everyone
Steve 		/home/steve		Read/write to all known users

Being new to Linux let alone Samba I hope I've over looked something
really simple!

Help me please!
