smbpasswd -a alan # must be root to do it and alan must be a user on the linux box
must be like this
"smbpasswd -a alan" # minus the quotesSome people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

i got this thing fixed.
What happened was i didnt open the port for windows machine to open. when we install linux we emable the firewall so that firewall block the ports which are needed by samba to talk to other computers. what we need to do is open those ports.
here is how u do it..
make sure that u have included /sbin in your PATH .. otherwise these command will not work. add the /sbin to the path or use /sbin/service command
assuming u have /sbin in ur path.
$ service iptables start
$ iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --sport 137 -j ACCEPT
$ iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --sport 138 -j ACCEPT
$ iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --sport 139 -j ACCEPT
$ service iptables stop
remember to stop iptables service..
and.. kaboom reboot machine and try to access ur samba server.. should work..
