I am trying to get samba working on centOS... I installed it via Yum, changed the samba config file to:

[ShareName]
        path = /var/www/html/
        public = no
        writable = yes
        printable = no
        create mask = 0765
        valid users = username

Restarted samba and it did nothing.. the windows network is not seeing the share at all. I realize there is most likely something I am missing but I have always done it with the GUI, but unable to do that this time.. Any pointers?
