Thanks a lot, I had read about that and added "unix extensions = no" but I also had to add "follow wide links = yes" to the [global] section of /etc/samba/smb.conf, but your post pointed me in the right direction.

And browsed to my directory
It says in the man page that "follow wide links = yes" is the default behaviour, but apparently not on my box. :S
