have you restarted the windows box since changes were made? what users have you created? you need a samba user, and a windows user with the same name and password.

so you now have access to the linux machine from windows but not the other way around? what does smbclient -L return. are you running a firewall on the windows box?

syntax is important, did you type

smbclient-L or smbclient -L with a space between smbclient and -L

do you have anything shared on the windows machine? try this, open a browser, konqueror will do. type in the address bar

smb://ip address of windows machine/sharename

post the results.

check the share permissions from the windows machine, each share needs to be configured for the user to access the files. you'll have to do that from windows.

you don't need to put the windows share in your smb.conf. you should be able to connect to it through a browser if the permissions allow it. the user needs to have permission to the file.

right click the share to get a menu, sharing should be one of the options. choose that, a window will pop up showing the share name, there is a permisions button under the share name, hit that from that window you can control permissions to the share.
good luck.
