OK, what have you installed samba on and how ?

Did you restart samba ?

You should have logfiles, you are possibly looking in the wrong place, 
especially if you compiled samba yourself, try running this in a 
terminal: 'samba -b'

this should list the build environment, amongst which should be where 
the logs are : 'LOGFILEBASE'
