Figured I would update this thread.
So I installed CentOS and set it up on a Virtual Machine. Got Samba up and running, but I am having a couple issues with Samba and Linux.
1. I was unable to create a static Ip. No matter what I did, it would not work. I have no idea why. I put in the proper DNS servers, picked the IP in the proper range, and put in the default gateway. I used my routers IP as the default gateway because my router is what handles my DNS servers (OpenDNS) and my default Gateway. Could that have been the issue? I have no idea how to point linux towards my router for everything EXCEPT the IP. Anyway, it works fine with DHCP enabled. It's only going to be a simple file server for my LAN. I don't think I need a static IP, as it's not a webserver etc.. I could be wrong. Please shed some light on this subject for me.
2. When I went and configured Samba, I originally had security set to shared. I didn't care who got in and put anything on the server in my house. However, the folder I created /Share, showed up on the network, but would not let ANYONE write to it. So I switched permissions to users. I created two new users. One for myself, one for another person in my house. I then added them to Samba. I made the username/password the exact same as their Windows one. I set up [homes] so the users Home folder will show up to them, and them only. Both of them are shown, and both can be written to. Yet, no matter what I do, neither user can write to SHARE. We get "You must have permission to do this"
If anyone can help me with those issues it would be awesome. You guys have been big help already. Here is how smb.conf looks for [share]
path = /share
writable = yes
browseable = yes
valid users = Doug Dave
