I want to acces my Linux box from WinXP laptop.
This is how I've configured samba.
I was using this howto: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/quick-samba-howto.xml

genio / # vi /etc/samba/smb.conf:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
interfaces = lo eth0
bind interfaces only = yes
hosts allow = 127. 192.168.
;hosts deny = 0.0.0.0/0
security = share
guest ok = yes

[public]
comment = Public
browsable = yes
public = yes
create mode = 0766
guest ok = yes
path = /Wine


permissions to /Wine:
drwxr-xr-x   4 root users 4,0K gru 29 19:49 Wine


Testparm goes OK.
genio / # testparm:
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[public]"
Loaded services file OK.
Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE
Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions

[global]
        interfaces = lo, eth0
        bind interfaces only = Yes
        security = SHARE
        guest ok = Yes
        hosts allow = 127., 192.168.

[public]
        comment = Public
        path = /Wine
        create mask = 0766


I can see from my Linux box the WinXp laptop from which I want to access Linux share
genio / # smbclient -L localhost:
Password:
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.28]

        Sharename       Type      Comment
        ---------       ----      -------
        IPC$            IPC       IPC Service (Samba 3.0.28)
        public          Disk      Public
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.28]

        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------
        GENIO                Samba 3.0.28
        K_MKULIK             Laptop Marty

        Workgroup            Master
        ---------            -------
        WORKGROUP            GENIO


but whe I try to access \\genio\public from WinXP it says it cannot find it?

What did I do wrong?

Only root has write access to /Wine. Guest access under Samba is handled by the nobody account.
