XP Client Returns 'Access is Denied' Error When Trying to Connect to a Samba Server


Hi, I have a problem where whenever I try to connect/access my samba server from windows, it returns the error 'Acces is Denied'. I don't know why, I just reinstalled FC3 (no GUI), before I had it working fine, but now I just get the error. Here is my smb.conf:

[global]
workgroup =HOME
netbios name = SERVER
server string = File Server
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
unix password sync = Yes
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
printcap name = /etc/printcap
dns proxy = No
idmap uid = 16777216-33554431
idmap gid = 16777216-33554431
cups options = raw

[homes]
comment = Home Directories
read only = No
browseable = No

[printers]
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = Yes
browseable = No

------------------------------
Any information would be great,

Cheers, BuckRogers01

How about changing your [homes] to

[my_home]
path = /home/yourusername
guest ok = yes
writeable = yes
create mode = 0666
directory mode = 0777
browseable = yes
public = yes

?
