My SOHO system consists of two Linux workstations, each with some
network functions, a Windows XP pro laptop, and a Windows XP Home
notebook. All are connected via a local net using cat 5 cable or wifi. I
have a ton of tech data on Samba, from how to get it to how to
administer a large network using Samba. (I think my problem is too much
data.) All I want is to publish a folder on any of the machines that
can be opened by any other machine. Can anyone give me a simple
step-by-step procedure for doing that? Any help appreciated.

When I need to share folders for everyone, I prefer to share a folder, from
Samba server in yast, so that is accessible only by guests (the option should
be "guest only = yes") and the symbolic links are followed ("Follow symbolic
links = yes"). Then I create in this folder symbolic links to folders I want
to share.
