The information you have provided does not permit us to help you due the

Please refer to my book "Samba-3 by Example, 2nd Edition" for complete network 
solutions that were built using SuSE 9.3 Professional. Each chapter fully 
documents step-by-step procedures to implement the complete network discussed 
there in.

This book can be purchased from Amazon.Com by searching for ISBN: 013188221X.

Alternately, you can download a PDF of the current book from:

If you still have troubles when you have carefully followed the examples shown 
there please write to me directly at jht at samba.org.
