Sharing with samba

Hello! I'm triying to share a folder of my redhat8 linux in my LAN so other machines that uses windows can see them. I'm using samba (samba-2.2.7-5.8.0) and I found out in a manual that the lines to be added at /etc/samba/smb.conf were the following

path = /usr/local/share/smbcompartido
public = yes
only guest = yes
writable = yes
printable = no

I added them (previously I created the directory /usr/local/share/smbcompartido :P) but I still cannot see the folder in my other machines. Anyone can give me some tips? Thanks

I believe the share will be called /server_name/public not /usr/local/share/smbcompartido in Network Neighborhood.

I have several shares all with the following format:

comment = Share Name
path = /data/share_name
read only = No
guest ok = Yes

You didn't post anything about your global settings, the problem can exist in there also... do you have other shares working in Samba or is this your only share... If you can post your the info under [global] as well.
