Samba server not working...
I'm a complete newbie...
A couple of days ago I turned one of my three computers into a Suse 10.1 Linux machine, intending to use it as backup for my music and picture files while I get to grips with Linux. The other 2 are still running Windows XP.
All went well, and I can see the other 2 machines from the Linux machine, and I've successfully copied files into my home directory. However, I cannot see the Linux machine from windows. Some shares are listed in explorer but they cannot be opened, and the computer is described as 'unknown'.
It seems to me that Samba is not working correctly; on boot up, the smb file system is listed as 'not used', and when I tried to share my home directory, it was rejected and a comment said 'perhaps smbd is not running'.
Any thoughts, anyone???
