hi man thanks
i addded the username as a system user in Linux, i will add the user in SAMBA, is this in the /etc/samba Directory, i guess i have to pico the user file ?
As far as listing shares, how is that done exactly, i thought i had done it with this entry

shares Disk Linuxserv01 ETC
cdrom Disk Linuxserv01 CD-ROM
print$ Disk Printer Drivers
IPC$ IPC IPC Service (Samba 2.2.5)

SWAT ? no i have just manually edited the smb.conf file , and manually started the following
cd /etc/rc.d/./smb start
i can see the server in windows 2000 and XP but am unable to browse into the file system ?
