    redhat file sharing error with windows 2000 server

    I have two computers, A(frodo) and B(gandal).

    I installed redhat 9 on A computer and windows 2k server on B computer.

    for file sharing, i installed samba on A computer. and samba is running up ok. but when i check "computers near me", frodo shows up. but when i try to browse "frodo" to see public folders, it says "\\frodo" is inaccessible. The path is not found."

    i try "smbclient gandal" too, but it shows an error.

    i don't know what's wrong... should i use same password for A and B? the password for B is only 5 characters. A has 7 characters for password.

    this is my smb.conf

    log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
    smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
    load printers = yes
    passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Retype*new*password* %n\n *passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*success fully*
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    obey pam restrictions = yes
    username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
    encrypt passwords = yes
    passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
    dns proxy = no
    netbios name = frodo
    netbios aliases = frodo
    server string = samba server
    printing = cups
    default = samba
    path = /tmp/download
    unix password sync = Yes
    workgroup = workgroup
    hosts allow =
    os level = 20
    auto services = samba
    printcap name = /etc/printcap
    max log size = 0
    pam password change = yes
    wins support = yes
    wins server =
    wins proxy = yes

    comment = Home Directories
    browseable = no
    writeable = yes
    valid users = %S
    create mode = 0664
    directory mode = 0775

    comment = All Printers
    path = /var/spool/samba
    browseable = no
    printable = yes

    path = /home
    public = yes
    only guest = yes
    writable = yes
    printable = no

    Ensure both the computers are under SAME subnet MASK


    and modify your PUBLIC Share as follows

    pubilc = yes
    guest ok = yes
    writable = yes
    printable = no
    browseable = yes
    create mask = 0644
