Can't See Shared Folders


I have 3 machines. Two are dual boot Suse 10.2, and Windows XP, the other one is Edubuntu 7.04. I can't seem to get one of the suse boxes to share a folder with Samba. I try to go to the folder, and I see it, then when I click on it I am told it does not exist. The thing is, that it is set up exactly like the other suse box which shares just fine. I am obviously missing a setting that I need to check. With the Edubuntu box it sees both of the other suse machines, but neither can see it. When in Windows, or Linux the same issue exists. Can't see Edubuntu, and the share on the one Suse can't be accessed.

Any ideas as to what setting I am missing so that all machines can see each other and share using Samba?

correct me if i am wrong anyone, but if you are dual booting, you won't be able to see the suse shares while windows is running

i would copy the samba.conf from one suse box to the other and make sure specific stuff is changed (name of shares, computer name, etc.)

Also, are smbpasswd accounts set properly on all Linux systems?
