The command you want is dpkg -L samba

You may have stumbled on this bug/feature:

I would run the following commands to clear everything out and start again:
sudo apt-get --purge remove samba-common
sudo apt-get install samba

Once complete go to the /etc/samba and check the relevant config file

I've just tested all of this now and it works, so it shouldn't be an Ubuntu
10.04 packaging problem.
