First, which distribution & version are you using? Is iptables and selinux enable? Is your Linux box connected to windows domain or workgroup? If workgroup, is the userid & password on your windows box match the userid on Linux?

User name doesnt really matter,as long as you grant it.
Different workgroups ID is OK if the same USER id and Password used.

You will not be able to browse LINUX folder when SE-LINUX is enabled.
You might be see the box ONLY, possibly.
