It's been my experience that your configuration file will need a lot more 
than that. You also need samba passwords. Unless you have set your Windows PC 
for clear text passwords you will need to have the encrypt passwords = yes in 
your file. Check out the Samba How To on ssamba.org and also the samba how to 
at tldp.org (They may be the same how to I am not sure) It has a a good 
initial setup for samba in there.
