Edit the file
remove everything out of it except the stop and start command.
open a root window and execute the command

#smbpasswd -a <username>

Do that for each user you want to add, the user must also be a user on that machine
you may add a password or no password to the user name "nobody"

Edit the file
Add a section for the shared path

comment = Marty's Scratch directory
writeable = yes
path = /scratch
public = yes

The above is just a sample, make sure the path is shared.
Run samba
You should now see that machine from any windows machine.
