[SAMBA] Problems acessing samba share


Hello.

I'm trying to put samba to work, but it's getting tricky...

I'm using FC4 as server, and testing with WinXP.

I can view both shares (tmp and jmorgado) in WinXP, but can only acess the tmp share... When trying to map jmorgado share, I get:
"The network path //personaserver01/jmorgado could not be found"

The user jmorgado exists in the server, as the path /home/jmorgado.
I've already executed smbpasswd -a jmorgado...

Could anyone give some clue about what is going on here?

Another thing that I'm not quite understanding is: I try to copy some files to /tmp, but I can't see them in WinXp explorer... Only files that I copy from WinXP machine to samba server are visible.

Thanks!

smb.conf:
[global]

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
# Alterado JM 25/12/2005
workgroup = PERSONA

# Adicionado JM 25/12/2005

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = Samba Server %v

# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page
; hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127.

# update the Linux system password also.
# NOTE: Use these with 'encrypt passwords' and 'smb passwd file' above.

# elections. The default value should be reasonable
; os level = 33

# Domain Master specifies Samba to be the Domain Master Browser. This
# allows Samba to collate browse lists between subnets. Don't use this
# if you already have a Windows NT domain controller doing this job
; domain master = yes

# All NetBIOS names must be resolved to IP Addresses
# 'Name Resolve Order' allows the named resolution mechanism to be specified
# the default order is "host lmhosts wins bcast". "host" means use the unix
# system gethostbyname() function call that will use either /etc/hosts OR
# DNS or NIS depending on the settings of /etc/host.config, /etc/nsswitch.conf
# and the /etc/resolv.conf file. "host" therefore is system configuration
# dependant. This parameter is most often of use to prevent DNS lookups
# in order to resolve NetBIOS names to IP Addresses. Use with care!
# The example below excludes use of name resolution for machines that are NOT
# on the local network segment
# - OR - are not deliberately to be known via lmhosts or via WINS.
