Ubuntu Server with Samba, Windows PC's cant access server!


I have created a RAID 1 array using Ubuntu Linux. I installed a graphical base system (by default) opposed to entering 'server' at the install disc boot prompt. Both my arrays have 160 GB hard drives and are correctly syncing:

Code:
# cat /proc/mdstat
Quote:
Personalities : [raid1]
md0 : active raid1 hdb1[0] hda1[1]
159332544 blocks [2/2] [UU]

unused devices: <none>
I then:

Code:
# nmbd
#smbd
I then created my users:

Code:
# adduser bob
I then ran:

Code:
# smbpasswd
I then edited /etc/samba/smb.conf:

(Comments removed for clarity, "Network Data" is the folder I would like to share on the server, as well as the user's respective home's)

After editing smb.conf I then restarted samba with:
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart
My windows clients can see the server (Samba is running) but no prompt is given for password, I'm just not allowed to use 'this resource'.

Any suggestions?
