Steps below might help you to browse linux shares

open  /etc/samba/smb.conf and add the following lines :-

[xyz]
comment = Share Folder
browseable = no
path = /usr/xyz
guest  ok = yes
writeable = yes
-------------

Where xyz is the name of the linux folder

Do let me know wheather it works or not

Thank you De2Zotjes,

  It took alittle more research on my part in the way of winbind configuration and required modules etc. but your tips got me where I needed to be.  I can now authenticate using windows domain credentials without needing to create a local account on the linux server for my windows users.  This integrated nicely with MS AD and provided the functionality I was looking for.  Thank you again for pointing me in the right direction.
