I have set up a samba share on my redhat machine. Both of my xp home computers cannot access the shared folders on that machine. I can log into the machine with one of my linux user accounts but when i click on the shared folder it gives me the "cannot access folder...not the right permissions...please contact admin" error.

I've looked everywhere but i can't find where im messing up.

If you want to change permissions, become root, and then use chmod. Here are some helpful links.

Odd. . .I would set up a share on your windows machine if possible, let linux read and write on it, then just use that for everything. Typically linux plays better with windows than windows plays with linux. It just seems easier to me that way.
