Question netshare (samba) from webmin


I have fedora 13 (with samba) and XP on Vbox (same LAN).
Installed webmin on the fedora machine and created a shared folder (/home/myshare).
stopped iptables, gave the folder chmod 777 and tried reaching the folder from the XP with no success, any ideas why?

OK, I can see the folders now from my Windows machine but I can't access them.
I created a user:
smbpasswd -a newuser
and tried using that when asked for credentials, but....nothing

check the permission of the shared folder on your samba server.
