above problem is resolved. Now I have new problem. When I access from windows XP to linux through samba server it prompts for (GUI):
User name:\Guest
Password :

and\Guest can't change (it is grayed), I do not make any user with name Guest. I want to access with user either root or uk but unable do to that.

Note: I have done this smbpasswd -a uk
