	Sorry, it is not very clear for me what is your question.
If you have /dir/a shared and you have a new directory inside of
it, you don't need to share it again. If you are asking if you
need to create entries in the smb.conf for your directories, then
the answer is "yes".

	Hmmm, again, it is not quite clear what are your
intentions. Considering the first paragraph, you want to
access the Samba server from Windows clients, it will depend
on your setup, if you use simple shares, just browse to the
server, if you want to use Domain you will need a few more

	It will depend on your distribution and setup. The
most famous configuration file is smb.conf and usually you
can find it in /etc/samba/smb.conf

	My main advice right now is: read the Samba Official
HOWTO and the smb.conf manpages. It is *really* important.


	Kind regards,
