Samba on Fedora 7 x86_64

I've had a Samba server running previously on my machine. I used the KDE Control Center for setup. I attempted to change the shared directory from /home/shares to /srv/samba. After making that change, when I attempted to access the share via SMB, I got the error "The file or folder smb://maxwell/shares does not exist." even though I could get as far as smb://maxwell/ and see the samba directory. I attempted to change back to /home/shares and received the same error. I don't know what the issue is because up to that point I made no other changes. Since then, I've tried repairing it to no avail. I am now trying to share /srv/samba. Most recently, I have used system-config-samba to try to get this to work. My /etc/samba/smb.conf is:

security = share
restrict anonymous = no
domain master = no
preferred master = no
workgroup = Funk-Net
server string = Samba Sever
; netbios name = maxwell
max protocol = NT
acl compatibility = winnt
ldap ssl = No
server signing = Auto
; encrypt passwords = yes
; guest ok = no
; guest account = nobody

case sensitive = no
strict locking = no
guest ok = yes
msdfs proxy = no
writeable = yes
path = /srv/samba
; browseable = yes
; browseable = yes

I've made SELinux modifications to allow Samba to be able to serve pretty much everything. Any ideas?
