I have my machine configured to run VMWare Server with a NAT ethernet
connection, and with samba running, I can see the host with "printers and
faxes" and "scheduled tasks," but no drives. The whole point of this is to
get access to my host drives from my Windows on VMWare guest. Here's my

# cat smb.conf
# Global parameters
workgroup = MARKGROUP
server string = Samba Server
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
printcap name = /etc/printcap
preferred master = Yes
dns proxy = No
wins support = Yes
idmap uid = 16777216-33554431
idmap gid = 16777216-33554431
hosts allow = 192.168.230. 192.168.108. 127.
cups options = raw

comment = Home Directories
path = /home/%u
valid users = %S
read only = No
browseable = No

comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = Yes
browseable = No

comment = Temporary file space
path = /tmp
read only = No
guest ok = No

Now, I would expect at least to be able to see the tmp, but nothing. Any
suggestions would be welcome.
