[Samba] Second attempt

Hi gang,
Just having my second attempt at setting up samba.
My ultimate goal is to have a server with 3 linux
clients, 2 mac OSX, and a single windows client.

I did manage to get the windows client mounted although
it was with some assistance and I did not really understand
what I had done.

Currently I have the Server (linux) running on and I though
I would first try to get a linux client connected.
On the server I have a user named photo with a standard password.
I also ran
smbpasswd -a photo and added a password also.
When I tried to connect I got this error
smbmount "\\\\\\home\\photo" /mnt/smbshare
10924: session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed

I know the fault is with me, but I have read through the docs
and cannot see the problem.

Kind regards
