Hi Kid,

use this in smb.conf


[myshare]
comment = Krishna's share
path = /var/www/html/mail (Your path)
public = yes
writable = no
browsable = yes
create mask = 0765

Add any unix user and then create a samba account

smbadduser unixuser:unixuser
then,
smbpasswd unixuser

and then try to connect!

regards
Krishna

For sharing folder
[profiles]
path = /home/samba/profiles
read only = No
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700

Also set the password.

# /usr/bin/smbpasswd -a root password

Please also refer this link.
