If you have any problems, you can post back the [General] and the [WST-FileCabinet] sections of your /etc/smb.conf configuration file. Also show the long listing of the directory begin shared, as in "ls -ld /home/samba/WST-FileCabinet".
Also provide information about this share. Such as is it read-only or read-write. Is it private or public.
If I were you I would look in the "Samba 3 by Example" book I mentioned. If you can't install a samba-doc package, go to the www.samba.org
web site and download the book from there. You may want to use one of the earlier configurations in the book as a guide. The book also guides you through the setup of the shared directories as well.
do i need to set some special things for my windows box?
If there is something to do on the windows machine it may be shown as well. There are only a couple of instances of that in the book, and only with earlier versions of windows, like 95 and ME. You probably won't have to run into that. You do need to use the same WORKGROUP name for all your windows machines and the Samba configuration.
I already mentioned about creating regular users in Linux to match the windows users and using the "smbpasswd" program. You don't need to create a home directory for each of them if you don't want to. Their entries in /etc/passwd and the users file that smbpasswd creates is what is important for granting access. There are other ways of doing the samba authentication, but this is the easiest. Unless you have something like 25-50 users it's the best way to go.
By the way, the example setups in the book include one configuring a samba PDC for a 500+ users network. You probably don't need to study that one, but who knows, maybe you could be a hero at work some day!
