[Samba] Unable to see linux filesystem with samba running

I am new to Linux. I am using Redhat 9.0. I have installed the Samba
software, configured the smb.conf, added my client Windows XP box into the
hosts.allow, hosts.equiv etc and started the smb service.


Still I am unable to map the Linux share on to my Windows XP box. I have
tried enabling and disabling the XP firewall also. I can see the Linux
machine name in the Windows explorer "My network Places" under the
configured workgroup, but I can not see the shares. It gives me the error
"Network path \\as01pgoelvm1\apac <file:///\\as01pgoelvm1\apac>  not found"


"apac" is the name of the share I have created on my Linux VMware machine


Can some please help me?


Thanks & Regards
