Samba config issues

I've been having trouble with Samba, I've always hated samba for its configuration issues, and here I am dealing with it on Fedora 16 now.

My Issue:
[root@home samba]# smbclient  //localhost/movies -U rtaft
Enter rtaft's password:
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.6.6-88.fc16]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME
[root@home samba]# smbclient  //localhost/rtaft -U rtaft
Enter rtaft's password:
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.6.6-88.fc16]
smb: \> ls
I've tried all sorts of suggestions from chmod +x to changing ownership of everything in movies to nobody.

        workgroup = workgroup
        server string = Samba Server Version %v
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        security = user
        netbios name = server
;       passdb backend = tdbsam
;       encrypt passwords = yes
;       guest ok = no
;       guest account = nobody

        comment = Home Directories
        browseable = no
        writable = yes
        valid users = %S

        path = /media/Disk2/Movies
        read only = yes
        browseable = yes
        users = rtaft
        create mask = 0644
        directory mask = 0755
log output
[2012/12/16 13:35:14.139100,  0] smbd/service.c:1055(make_connection_snum)
  canonicalize_connect_path failed for service movies, path /media/Disk2/Movies
/dev/sdb /media/Disk2 ext4 rw,seclabel,nosuid,nodev,relatime,data=ordered 0 0
