FC4 + Samba. Can anyone help?

Alright, I have posted this else where and no one seems to be able to give me an answer, other then "Oh yeah, I've heard FC+Samba was tricky".

Below is a link to another thread that shows the smb.conf file I was able to generate and what problems I was having (Mainly I can get the FC box to show up on the network, but it comes up as the wrong name from what I've supplied it, and I can't access it.). If anyone here knows what I'm doing wrong or what I need to fix/change to make this work, please let me know.

My theory is that the workgroup sees it has 'localhost' instead of what it should be called. How can that be fixed?

Thank you in advance.

More than likely it is using the defined hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network. See if that is what is in there. Change it to what you want and restart networking.

Have you setup users to the samba server?

For a generic anyone access point try this. If it is on and ext2/3 partition then also chmod the directory ' chmod 777 backup '
   path = /backup
   public = yes
   only guest = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = no
Also restart smb/nmb server after changes.

Hope this helps.
