You may need to post your smb.conf, I have a same kind of share as yours and it works fine.

For example:

        browseable = yes
        comment = Backup share
        writable = yes
        public = yes
        path = /home/backup
        available = yes

The only difference being I have it set to available and a comment. Mine is perfectly accessible from a Windows XP Pro machine without any problems. (read & write)

I have installed samba 3.0.7-1 on debian sarge.  I
have configure it as standalone.  I put a share as
writeable = yes
browseable = yes
public = yes
path = /home/samba

The permission on /home/samba is as follows: 
chmod 777 /home/samba

Now on my windows XP, the share is listed when i
browse.  I am also able to copy a file to the share. 
But i cannot open the file and it just freeze my

Some helps will be much appreciated.
