Share complete server with Samba

Hi, I'm running a SuSE 7.3 server that acts as a fileserver and a gateway for my 2 Win2000 workstations.

I just bought a Onstream 30GB tape drive but I can't get it installed on my Server, so I put it in one of my workstations.

Now what do I need to put in my Samba Config file so that I can share the complete harddrive.
I know it is possible because I have seen it in action.

Please help.

Short Answer.

comment = The whole darn drive
path = /
valid users = backup, Administrator
writable = no

The '$' at the end of 'admin' makes the share "hidden", so that it can't be seen by simple browsing Network Neighborhood. It's an obscurity measure.
