    At first it can look a little confusing. You can of course have a graphical interface to set this up (but it is a waste of ressources).

    Anyway there is not much to do. Once you have samba installed, you just need a proper /etc/samba/smb.conf file.

    An easy example would look like that :

    workgroup = workgroup
    server string = %h server (Samba %v)
    security = SHARE
    obey pam restrictions = Yes
    passdb backend = tdbsam, guest
    passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
    passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n .
    syslog = 0
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    max log size = 1000
    dns proxy = No
    panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
    invalid users = root

    [homes]
    comment = Home Directories
    create mask = 0700
    directory mask = 0700
    browseable = No

    [my_shares]
    comment = some shares
    path = /home/shares
    force user = nobody
    force group = nogroup
    read only = No
    create mask = 0777
    force create mode = 0777
    directory mask = 0777
    force directory mode = 0777
    guest ok = Yes

    [printers]
    comment = All Printers
    path = /tmp
    create mask = 0700
    printable = Yes
    browseable = No

    [print$]
    comment = Printer Drivers
    path = /var/lib/samba/printers

    Don't give up !

    There are much easier solution then the ones I mentionned so far. I am just not very familiar with them. Some Linux distributions come with a file server pre-configured and ready to go.

    I believe "clarkconnect" is one of them :
    ftp://community-40:hiptop@ftp.clarkc...munity-4.0.iso

    Perhaps someone else will pop up in this thread and present you an easy solution...
