hi spandau, welcome to lq. i'd suggest some reading here

http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/using_samba/toc.html

http://hr.uoregon.edu/davidrl/samba.html

once your trying to configure things, if you run into trouble post back. i will reccommend one thing other than the reading, write the smb.conf file from scratch. it makes troubleshooting easier than the generic conf files generated by swat and webmin, although those are excellent tools in their own right. hope this gets you going.
good luck.
