I'm using Fedora and have setup a samba share on the server.
I followed the instructions at:

I am able to see the samba server through nwk nh but when I
try to access the share I get this error message:
\\server\share is not accessable. You might not have
permission to use this network resource. etc...

The /var/log/samba/machine.log contains:
'/home/shareddir' does not exist or is not a directory, when
connecting to [userid]

The shared dir is my linux users home dir and so it exists
and it is a directory.

Can someone point me in the right direction please...
