Samba Configuration --- Linux Directory access from windows

Dear All,
Kindly go through the below mentioned site

1. install rpm package for smb (samba)
2. edit smb.conf (path= /etc/samba/smb.conf)
and add the directory name and user which you want to share
3. create same user as windows who access the directory from windows.
for example: windows user is "admin" which will access the linux shared directory.
then we need to create the same user in linux server also with the same password.

4. add user to smb
$smbpasswd -a [username]

5. restart smb services
$service smb restart
$service /sbin/samba/smb restart
