I had the same prob and fixed it this way...

I had experienced almost exactly the same problem when assisting a friend: trying to mount an NTFS drive on a SUSE box, share via SAMBA and try to access it from a XP pc... didn't work and threw up the same error as yours. I tried bloody EVERYTHING I could think and had no luck at all. Then I looked, by chance, at /etc/fstab and saw the following:

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/data ntfs exec,dev,suid,noauto 0 0

This look dodgy to me so I changed it to:

/dev/hdb1 /data2 ntfs users,owner,ro,umask=000 0 0

Then created the ffg. smb.conf:
[global]
netbios name = VWADFOS01
printcap name = CUPS
encrypt passwords = yes
add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -c Machine -d /dev/null -s /bin/false %m$
log level = 5
security = SHARE
preferred master = No
wins server = 196.4.214.94
workgroup = AVISIONNET
server string = Samba Server on VWADFOS01(Front Office software store)
socket options = SO_KEEPALIVE IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY
veto files = /*.eml/*.nws/riched20.dll/*.{*}/
username map = /etc/samba/user.map
unix extensions = Yes
guest ok = Yes
printing = cups
writable = no
time server = Yes
os level = 65

[software$]
comment = software
path = /data2

And the sod started working fine... in fact I'm betting that all the smb suggestions you got from the guys on this thread will work fine, it's the *mount* permissions that may be the problem....

Hope this helps

If you'r not able to browse the windows parttions as a user then more then likely you do not have permissions as user nobody to browse the windows mounted drives. I have had permissions issues with windows mounted drives in slackware. It just seams by default that the windows shares only have root permissions. What i would recommend is moving the data you want to share to a native linux parttion and giviing the directory ownership of nobody as the user. One this is more secure 2. Its a whole hell of a lot eazier. Other then that you can make access to other parts of the file system by symlinking into other direcotrys from the shared directory.

Never mind it looks like someone has figured it out for you and it looked like user permissions is what it was.

yeah...%$%#%$ NTFS/fat32...actually the bigger problem is that win cant access linux native formats at all(and definitely not reiser4)...but linux can read anything and so were forced to put commonly accessed things like mp3's on a fat32/ntfs drive for easy access on a dual boot setup

ive tried things like explore2fs and they seemed a little too crude..

thanx avatar666 and exvor!
