Samba with Mandrade 9.1

Hey guys.. Im new to linux I just resently installed Mandrake 9.1 on my PC and I am trying to setup Samba so I can view files (mostly vids and music) from a windows 2000 box... Im trying to migrate all my music and other stuff to a linux box.. Anyways Im having problems configuring Samba... I am using the web interface.. and when I try to "access" files from win2k to mandrake.. on the network neighborhood it won't find the mandrake box..

check your workgroup name. Use the same as the W2K box.
Can you ping the machine using it's windows network name ?
