[Samba] Accessing ZIP drive

I have Samba 3.0.22 installed on a FreeBSD 6.1 OS. I am fairly new to
Samba, so please bear with me.

I set up shares for /var /usr and $HOME without any problems. They can
all be accessed from one of my WinXP Pro machines without incident.

I then created a share for the ZIP drive on the FreeBSD system.
Unfortunately, I am unable to access the the ZIP drive installed on the
FreeBSD machine. I continually receive this error message:


\\seibercom\zip is not accessible. You might not have permission to use
this network resource.

Network access is denied!


I have no idea how to correct this problem. The ZIP drive is mounted
automatically at boot time from /etc/fstab.
