    This is a good article to help you create NFS shares.

    Maybe this will help you?

    But in a nutshell:

    1. get the samba packages installed

    2. edit the samba config file (e.g. /etc/samba/smb.conf)

    3. change workgroup if necessary, under [global] section

    4. add directory share definitions at bottom of file (examples should be there)

    5. save and exit editor, restart samba

    6. add samba users, e.g.:
    Code:
    smbpasswd -a joeblow
    Test samba locally first, e.g.:

    Code:
    smbclient -U joeblow -L localhost

  4. $spacer_open
    $spacer_close
