Have you actually gone through and CONFIGURED Samba yet? Run it? Installing it is step one.....

Check Google for more info on how to configure it for your environment. You don't say anything about what you're trying to do, so we can't give you specifics.

Should work fine...check the documentation link I sent you, or alot of the other docs you can find on Google, that describe how to do this.
