Installed SAMBA and XP or Win2000 can access Linux Share! Please Help.

just install Samba and did the testparm and everything works. I have 3 pc right now. One running windows 2000, one running windows XP and one running Fedora Core 1. They are all in the same Workgroup. In win2k and xp I can ping the Fedora box as well as browse the network neighborhood and see fedora box in the Workgroup. But when I try to access it, it said that \\fedora (the host name of the box) is not accessible. The network path was not found!!! For the pass 2 hours, I have read all the howtos and search everywhere and came up with nothing.

Can anyone assist me on this.

Thanks in advance.

Hello, don't suppose you'd like to tell us how? I have the same problem, and I'm not finding the cause, so knowing what you did that fixed it would really help me out.
