if /tmp is working, then the problem most likely is the path to the other shares. what exactly are you trying to share, is it a mounted directory, a cdrom, etc. ?

i think you've gotten confused, if you want to access a windows share, you can use from konqueror, smb://windows ip address/share name, it does not belong in the smb.conf. you must have the permissions setup correctly for the share. the only shares that need to be defined in the smb.conf, are your linux shares. hope that clears it up for you.

if you want to share your home directory it'll look something like this

[homes]
comment = Home Directory
path=/home
browseable = yes
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes

the smb.conf is for sharing your linux directories and configuration of the samba server. it has nothing to do with your shared windows directories. your shared windows directories have to be configured from windows.

so let me understand this, your trying to access a mounted windows directory from linneighborhood? if that's the case you don't need linneighborhood. if it's a mounted directory, just open it w/any file manager.

try this from the command line to mount the share.

mount -t smbfs //server/share /mnt/mntpoint -o username=un,password=pass
