you need to add root as well, and use the same password as the unix password. # smbpasswd -a root
means you are connecting to a share called Admin, But in your case you dont have that share. If you want to connect as a specific user, you use -U option
If you want to connect to the server, instead, just do:
# smbclient //kiska/businesses -U Admin (to connect to share 'businesses'as admin)
# smbclient //kiska/businesses -U root (to connect to share 'businesses' as root)

ok That worked beautifully
now that I have that out of the way, I want to figure out how to see the share "businesses" on my windows xp and vista machines. right now they are not visible in "my network places"
is this server a domain controller for your domain? If so, are the windows computers joined to the domain?
Can you reach this server form windows (# ping kiska)? is it in the dns? if not, can you ping it with its ip address from windows (ping 192.168.x.x)? if so then try; net use M: \\192.169.x.x\businesses

its denied because you are trying to connect as a windows user (who is not added as a samba user)
i think you need to study more about samba, otherwise your aproach will not make you understand the bigger picture.
You didnt answer all my questions though
net use M: \\192.169.x.x\businesses /user:NUS\Admin
in windows command prompt ???

I realized I needed to put "users = Admin" under the [businesses] section. now your mount drive command worked. is there any way to make the computer visible on my network places though. The people I work for like to have it simple and I don't want to have to mount the drive on every single computer
