Do you have samba running on the Linux box?
Is smbd and nmbd running?
Code:
ps ax | grep smbd
Do you have a share specified on the Linux box?
Samba is configured in your smb.conf file.
You need to have samba up and running.

Do a search on LQ for samba, smb.conf

http://www.samba.org/

This will get you up and running, modify as you will.
Your smb.conf file will be at different locations depending on what flavor of Linux that you are using.

Code:
[global]
workgroup=HOME
netbios name=lannut2
security=user
guest account = fred


[share]
path = /home/lannut2/share
available = yes
browsable = yes
public = yes
writable = yes

get error no route to network
Is your network working and configured?
