1: Make sure that Samba is installed on the Linux box. If not use Adept to install it.
2: Go to Places/Home/
3: Right click on the folding folder and select share
4: Select Share over Windows Network
5: Open a terminal window
6: Type sudo smbpasswd -a user name (replace user name with the name you use to log into your linux box)
7: enter your Linux password
8: enter a new Samba password
9: re-enter the above password to verify
10: reboot the system (may not be necessary, but it doesn't hurt)
11: From your Windows box use Windows Explorer to go to the share.
12: Enter the Linux user name and the new password you created when prompted.
13: Sacrifice two small goats and a White rabbit (again, may not be necessary but it can't hurt and you can then fix a nice dinner).
