[ubuntu] Why is it so difficult to set up Sambaview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Every time I set up a new Ubuntu I have problems getting Samba to work. I now have it working, but my process seems to have little to do with the documentation. 1. I run shares-admin, which offers to install NFS & SMB. 2. shares-admin Shared Folders only offers NFS not SMB, although the General Properties tab allows me to set Workgroup 3.

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I'm getting peculiar behaviour with Samba and was hoping someone could help me. I have searched quite a bit but not turned up anything like the problem I am facing.
