I do everything from the command line, and I'm sure there's a GUI alternative, but from a terminal as root

yum install samba

Why do you have path in Global?
Have you added the smbuser to the samba users?
Are you sure you want encrypt pawwords?
Did you read any of the documentation at www.samba.org?

did you edit /etc/samba/smb.conf??

after editing that go to windows and write following in Run promt
//<machine_name>

you can get machine_name via hostname variable after typing env in terminal of linux.
