there must be come line in that file , which says security= user ( or share) ..
# Security mode. Most people will want user level security. See
# security_level.txt for details.
   security = share

show that part..  u shud keep it as i have shown ,
btw u shud refer to security_level.txt file for further details. depends on the what kind of security are u looking for

Hi sudhanva!

  All it depends on the version of Samba. some Samba versions use encrypted password, where as win98 uses plain password (Probably). It may be the problem.


normally root password won't be helpfull across network. create a new user and try to access. For better reference use RedHat Linux Unleashed.

If u got solution, inform in this forum

Hi,

I think you need to add some user for the samba.
Try smbuseradd. Also read the manual
