And I don't mean just starting the "windows sharing" service, but actually configuring your shares with smb.conf. I got around to this last night, had to kinda get re-aquainted with it as I haven't been on linux in a long time. I have an external harddrive called Storage hooked up, and it's on here that I keep things backed up and share content. But Windows Sharing, with no configure options, didn't allow this. So I edited smb.conf (in: /Volumes/Hardrive/private/etc) and set up a public lan share. Until last night, I wasn't aware of the "private" folder, and thus, didn't know where the traditional unix directories were. A search for "smb" turned up nothing as admin user, but plenty came up for root.
