SAMBA Sample

Hi, I saw a couple of people with some standard Samba problems.
I hope that this example might clear some things up:

# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented
# version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the
# samba-doc package is installed.
# Date: 2005-03-22

# Notes from Last-Attacker
# When setting up in SuSE, make sure you do the following:
# * Replace the existing smb.conf with this one (make a copy
#   first if you desire)
# * 'Copy' the unix account passwords over the smbpasswd file
#   cat /etc/passwd | > /etc/samba/smbpasswd
# * Create users individually with 'smbpasswd <user>'
# * Open the following ports in firewall : 
#   (TCP) 137, 138
#   (UDP) 139, 445
# * Start/Restart the smb service
# What this SAMBA Config does:
# * Shares the /var/shares folder for guest full access
#   (for people to copy stuff to you and for you to share
#   with others without giving your account details, just
#   make sure make that directory is created and with the
#   nobody as user & group with full access)
# * Users that has accounts on this machine can log in
#   from Windows or Linux because they have to give their
#   username and password through the profiles folder.
# * Once they have logged in, a folder in the server's 
#   main view appears with the user's name on it sothat
#   the user don't have to log in again but when that
#   browser program is closed, it SHOULD 'log off'
#   (standard with all SAMBAS).
