I am trying to setup a samba server on Redhat Fedora 2 and trying to connect to it through Windows XP Professional.  

This samba server is a standalone server.  I can see it in the Network Places.  Every time I try to connect to it I get the following error in Windows.

"\\Samba is not accessible.  You might not have permission to use this network resource.  Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.  The network path was not found."

Here is my smb.conf file that I created using SWAT.  Can anyone help me?

Thank You
