Samba not able to share /mnt/windows

I have two machines, the host (linux) and the client (win98) and I want the client to be able to access files in the /mnt/windows on the host.

I have samba set up and configured but it only alows me to share folders in the linux partiton e.g. /home/mom is ok and works but

[Share Name]
path = /mnt/windows

give the error on the client:

\\KELLY\My Pictures is not accessable.  The share name was not found.

How can I share files on the /mnt/windows with the client.  From within linux I can access files from it no problem.

Can someone help me configure Samba so the client cann access files from /mnt/windows on the host (linux) machine?

Try setting up your share like this:

[Share Name]
   comment = Mary's and Fred's stuff
   path = /mnt/windows
   valid users = username1 username2
   browsable = yes
   public = no
   writable = no
   printable = no


You can always change public to yes and test that way if it doesn't work.
But this should work just fine.
