MikeL's FreeBSD howto - Samba

If you want DOS/Windows/NT machines on the network to be able to mount this computers drives as "shares", you'll want to install Samba.

This is basically a checklist of how to setup a new system to make samba work. The intent is not to cover everything in detail, merely to point you to each of the tasks that must be performed.

Related manual pages: samba.org.

The above config file changes alone are sufficient to make it work. I have had Win2k refuse to talk to the installation until reloaded -- if there's a problem it may not be Samba.
