I have the usernames and passwords matching up on the Windows XP Pro
machine, and the Mandriva machine.
>From the Mandriva machine when i try to browse the Windows XP shares, I

am prompted for a username and password. I tried entering the
administrator account, as well as a normal one, but all it shows me are
the c$ and h$ shares. I know what they are, but the folder I have
shared does not show up.

On the XP side, when I browse to the public share, I can see it just
fine, but when I try to copy a fileto that directory, It says it can't
find the specified file file.
This is the entry in smb.conf
case sensitive = no
guest ok = yes
msdfs proxy = no
path = /home/samba/public

What am I doign wrong?
