Windows crashes when entering Samba shares


Ok. I have installed Fedora Core 6 on my server (clean install) and wanted to setup samba to enter my shares on the server (and printing etc but thats another story).

I moved from RH9, so Fedora is a bit new for me, but I suggested that I could use my old smb.conf file.

This is my smb.conf file as far as it is now.

Code:
[global]
    workgroup = workgroup
    server string = Linux Server
    hosts deny = ALL
    hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
    max log size = 1000
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    bind interfaces only = True
    interfaces = eth0 192.168.1.1/32
    encrypt passwords = Yes

[Server downloads]
    path = /downloads
    public = Yes
    guest ok = Yes
    browsable = Yes
    writable = Yes
    printable = No

[Shared]
    path = /mnt/shared
    public = Yes
    guest ok = Yes
    browsable = Yes
    writable = Yes
    printable = No
So after restarting Samba I went to my local network inside Windows,a nd the Linux server was listed between the others. I can also enter the server to see its shares. Now here's the strange thing. I can enter the [Server downloads] folder whithout any problems (only thing is I can't write files but thats a problem for later), but when I enter the [Shared] folder my windows explorer crashes.

The [Shared] folder is, as you can see, a mounted partition (/dev/hdb1). I can enter and read the contents of this folder whithout any problems via my linux server self. On my previous config (using RH9) this also was a mounted partition (worked whitout problems).

This is an output of the log files:

smdb.log
Code:

And here a part of the log with my (windows) computers name:
Code:

[2006/11/07 02:16:14, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(911)
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong because this used to be a good working config with no probs.

Try mounting the drive. Or setting up the exact same user on both machines with access. I've never had windows crash, but I've had it stutter with permissions. I had to mount the drive with what user and password I needed.
I know this isn't a windows forum, but here:
windows_cmd:>net use x: \\Linux\pub /user:hockeyman MyPassword
that should be easier on your OS.

I'm not sure if this is going to help, but my linux server puts a lot of the following error code in the console whenever I'll try to access the [Shared] folder.

Code:
audit(1162947111.200:65): avc:  denied  { search } for  pid=2007 comm="smbd" name="/" dev=hdb1 ino=2 scontext=system_u:system_r:smbd_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:file_t:s0 tclass=dir
audit(1162947111.204:66): avc:  denied  { search } for  pid=2007 comm="smbd" name="/" dev=hdb1 ino=2 scontext=system_u:system_r:smbd_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:file_t:s0 tclass=dir
Notice (not sure if its important) that the last few numbers behind the "audit" (audit(...200:65)) change. The rest of the message is the same.

The problem has been sold by disabling SELinux.
