Dear all,

I just install samba, I already face a problem and could not find
solution on google.

I have install FC4
samab-3.0.14a + common + smbclient + swat installation ok

I create share in the [tmp] /tmp folder no problem can read and write
I create [share] /data can read but cannot write even with read only =no
and [homes]

from another linux box smbclient -L // -U foo I can see all
the sharing + the foo sharing from the [homes] configuration
I connect using smbmount // /tmp/smb -o username=foo
everything ok
I connect using smbmount // /tmp/smb -o username=foo ->
cannot write , I have done chmod 777 /data
I connect using smbmount // /tmp/smb -o username=foo ->
ERRnosuchshare I check the log samba tell me

[2006/03/02 14:14:37, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(615)
  '/home/foo' does not exist or is not a directory, when connecting to [foo]

What did I do wrong help please !!!
