Help with samba


Hi, I am having trouble with samba. I have previously set up a samba server with easy, but this one loves to torment me. Ok so I am using Mandriva PowerPack 2009.1 I have tried using their configuring program and hated it. I tried another called gaindem or something like that, and hated that as well. So I went to the trusty method I knew...editing the confs in the command line. I cannot access my share from a windows box.

Here is my smb.conf
Code:
#
# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
#
#
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which 
# are not shown in this example
#
# Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as
# commented-out examples in this file.
#  - When such options are commented with ";", the proposed setting
#    differs from the default Samba behaviour
#  - When commented with "#", the proposed setting is the default
#    behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important
#    enough to be mentioned here
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command
# "testparm" to check that you have not made any basic syntactic 
# errors. 
# A well-established practice is to name the original file
# "smb.conf.master" and create the "real" config file with
# testparm -s smb.conf.master >smb.conf
# This minimizes the size of the really used smb.conf file
# which, according to the Samba Team, impacts performance
#

#======================= Global Settings =======================

[global]
    
    ## Browsing/Identification ###
    
    # Change this to the workgroup/NT-domain name your Samba server will part of
    workgroup = INGTECH
    
    # server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
    server string = Jaguar
    
    # Windows Internet Name Serving Support Section:
    # WINS Support - Tells the NMBD component of Samba to enable its WINS Server
    #   wins support = no
    
    # WINS Server - Tells the NMBD components of Samba to be a WINS Client
    # Note: Samba can be either a WINS Server, or a WINS Client, but NOT both
    ;   wins server = w.x.y.z
    
    # This will prevent nmbd to search for NetBIOS names through DNS.
    dns proxy = no
    
    # What naming service and in what order should we use to resolve host names
    # to IP addresses
    ;   name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast
    
    #### Networking ####
    
    # The specific set of interfaces / networks to bind to
    # This can be either the interface name or an IP address/netmask;
    # interface names are normally preferred
    ;   interfaces = 127.0.0.0/8 eth0
    
    # Only bind to the named interfaces and/or networks; you must use the
    # 'interfaces' option above to use this.
    # It is recommended that you enable this feature if your Samba machine is
    # not protected by a firewall or is a firewall itself.  However, this
    # option cannot handle dynamic or non-broadcast interfaces correctly.
    ;   bind interfaces only = yes
    
    
    
    #### Debugging/Accounting ####
    
    # This tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
    # that connects
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    
    # Cap the size of the individual log files (in KiB).
    max log size = 1000
    
    # If you want Samba to only log through syslog then set the following
    # parameter to 'yes'.
    #   syslog only = no
    
    # We want Samba to log a minimum amount of information to syslog. Everything
    # should go to /var/log/samba/log.{smbd,nmbd} instead. If you want to log
    # through syslog you should set the following parameter to something higher.

    ####### Authentication #######
    
    # "security = user" is always a good idea. This will require a Unix account
    # in this server for every user accessing the server. See

    # in the samba-doc package for details.

    # password database type you are using.

    # This boolean parameter controls whether Samba attempts to sync the Unix
    # password with the SMB password when the encrypted SMB password in the
    # passdb is changed.
    unix password sync = yes
    
    # For Unix password sync to work on a Debian GNU/Linux system, the following
    # parameters must be set (thanks to Ian Kahan <<kahan@informatik.tu-muenchen.de> for
    # sending the correct chat script for the passwd program in Debian Sarge).

    passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .
    
    # This boolean controls whether PAM will be used for password changes
    # when requested by an SMB client instead of the program listed in
    # 'passwd program'. The default is 'no'.

Does anyone see anything I am obviously missing? Are there any onther config files you need to see?

I have uninstalled and reinstalled samba multiply times, and once have gone as far to not only uninstall it, but delete all samba related stuff.

If anyone could help

This is somewhat asking the obvious: Does the Windows user have an account on the Samba server?

Can you see the Samba share from the server? Run "smbclient -L localhost" on the server.

Yes the windows user has an account...

The output from smbclient -L localhost

Code:
Domain=[LOCALHOST] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.3.2]

        Sharename       Type      Comment
        ---------       ----      -------
        print$          Disk      Printer Drivers
        faxes           Disk
        files           Disk
        IPC$            IPC       IPC Service (Samba Server)
Domain=[LOCALHOST] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.3.2]

        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------

        Workgroup            Master
        ---------            -------
        INGTECH
EDIT: Ehh just noticed that the smb.conf isnt what it should be set as, but when it was proper it still had the same issue. Im gonna correct smb.conf

EDIT2: Ok changed smb.conf...I edited the [files] section

What error do you get when you try to connect from the Windows system?

If you set "browsable = yes" in [files], can you see the share from Windows Explorer?

What are the owners/permissions on /mnt/raid?

Ummm, when I goto the workgroup I see Jagauar(localhost) I then click on it and it say you do not have permisson or whatever...never askes for a user and pass. Hmm permissions on mnt/raid should be 0775 let me check
