"Access Denied" to printer and directories shared via Samba

I can't seem to fix this problem. I have tried both user and share security and added my accounts with smbuser. Here is my smb.conf... any help is appreciated:


workgroup = @home
server string = Samba Server
preferred master = yes
allow hosts =
security = share
encrypt passwords = no
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes

comment = Files
path = /usr/FILES
public = yes
read only = no
guest ok = yes

comment = Root
path = /
public = yes
read only = no
guest ok = yes

comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = yes
read only = true
public = yes
browseable = no
writable = no

Encrypt passwords should be yes if you are using NT or WIN2000. Plus you need to create an account in SWAT, one for root and one for a user. Also add a printer under the printer tab.
