fedora linux and samba file sharing

I've bene trying ot get file sharing to work, but the option "only allow certain users to access this share" only has a tick box for my user. If I add other users to the system, they don't appear here and I can't share with them.

Does anyone know if this is a fedora problem or just me? My fedora is not up to date because up2date and yum are broken for me at the moment. I'm waiting for them to produce new ISO images but that could be months.

What are you using to configure the system? Webmin? If so, have you clicked the "Add unix users to Samba" button on the first level menu?

Typically users have to be added to the "samba" group before they're able to use windows file sharing - this is a bit of a security thing; you'll notice on browsing around another option to "deny privileged users access to samba". If this is set, users that are able to use the command "su" (most of them in MDK, RH, the "wheel group in Gentoo) are not allowed to use Samba even if you add them to the Samba group. Basically, Windows file sharing creates a security hole or two...

Anyway, the point of all that, is that the "add user to Samba" merely automates this process for you.
