Change the share access in samba configuration. I do not have a Linux right now with me so cannot tell you the exact settings right now.

I don't think its for newbie but I putted in general although I think here is better for this subject because samba is a network service.

A (linux) Samba Server is configured in /etc/smb.conf and then starting the server daemons (e.g /etc/rc.d/rc.samba start).
