Required tools:

To install:

Make the following changes:
 
Quote:

workgroup = WORKGROUP

 

 
underneath it, add
 
netbios name = name_of_your_server (no spaces)
 
For example:
 
Quote:

netbios name = kenny_smb_server

 

 
Make sure "security" is set to "user".
 
Scroll down until you see "[homes]", set:
 
Quote:

browseable = yes

There are two ways to access it:
 
Method 1:
My network places > Entire Network > My Windows Network > Workgroup
 
Method 2:
in the address barm type in "[whatever you named the Samba server]". From my example above, I used "kenny_smb_server".
 
You should see a folder call "homes", click on it, and it will ask you for your username and password, enter your Ubuntu Login Name and whatever you choose for the password when you used command "smbpasswd". You should be able to take it from here.
 
Keep in mind that you are sharing, /home/[login name]/*
