The share will show up if it is listed reasonably in your shares 
declarations in smb.conf.  Accessing the share however requires that you 
have valid credentials for that share. There are a lot of things that 
can go wrong with this.

I suggest that you read the Samba Howto Collection or Samba by Example, 
or some of the other documentation available at samba.org.

Also, I suggest you install SWAT and use it to do the basic Samba 
configuration - especially use the Wizards to set up your Samba server. 
If this is to be a Domain Controller, also use SWAT to set up and 
activate your user accounts!

Good luck.
