Samba question
hi there...

i have just managed to set up samba on my home network. i can see the linux machine in network neighbour hood, and have this in my config file:


guest account = root

path = /home/bar
read only = no

however, when i double click on it, it asks me for a user name and password. i have tried root with my password, but still, it does not work. any ideas?

Did you add any SMB users with smbpasswd?

"smbpasswd --help" should tell you what to do. (Without the quotes.)
