Question Can't access Samba server

I have a Fedora 4 with Samba server installed and started up. I have another machine with Windows XP installed.

I can see the Samber Server(Fedora4 machine name) from my Windows XP computer's my network palce. But when i double click the Samber Server icon, I got a error message saying "can not access samba server, samba server is unaccessible or you dont have permission to access it".

I use GUI menu configured Samber server, create a public folder to share and selected the "access by everyone selection".

Thanks in advance for any reply!
