What do you mean by 'authenticate to the share'?  Normally you only
authenticate with a server.

If you can see a list of shares but you can't open them, it just means
you've locked down the access on the shares.  Try adding "public = yes"
or see the "valid users" option if you don't want everyone to get access.
