Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You must set the proper permissons in the smb.conf file. Alternatively you can install SWAT the webadmin tool to configure your system for Sabma. In a browser's location bar just type: http://localhost:901. Be warned that you first must make sure that SWAT is allowed to connec to localhost. to do so edit the file swat under /etc/xinet.d. Enable SWAT and then just configure your shares.
I don't use Samba yet, not quite ready to take that plunge. However, if you are using Linux and want to access a Windows shared folder, you can also open up Mozilla and type in smb://Hostname/ (example: If your Windows machine is named BigRed, typing "smb://BigRed/" minus quotes in Mozilla), which will take you to a listing of all available shares on the machine.
Oddly enough, in my experience you have to be running Gnome to make this work. It will not work on KDE (for me at least). I have not tried the other desktop styles.
This is the method I use to obtain files from my Windows XP machine when on my Linux machine.
