Windows cannot browse Samba Share

Recommended Posts

- Okay I got Samba set up in Mandriva 2006. - I am sharing a folder, it is public, writeable, browseable. - I log into the Windows ME computer and check My Network Places - The Samba share comp exists, even with the comment "Samba Server 3.0.20" - When I try and access the comp to see what it is sharing Windows propmptly says: "\\Homer is not accessible Windows cannot find the computer or share name. Make sure the computer or share name is valid and that you are connected to the network." Now, I am confused with that error since the comp in question appeared in the Workgroup immediatly after enabling Samba. Any help?

I was on 'share' and then I switched to 'user'.
Neither worked.

I'll try setting a samba password for the windows user.
See... When I try and browse the samba shares it doesn't even ask for a user/pass to start...
