I know this has become expected of me but I'm confused by this whole thread.
It sounds like you want a GUI to control Samba. If that is the case and you already have the Ubuntu desktop of your server then you have 2 options depending on how complex the shares you are trying to create are:
** You can use Nautilus itself by right clicking a folder you own and selecting "Sharing Options" - that will install the samba server package automatically if you already haven't installed it.
** You can also install the more traditional samba gui:
But I detect a sub-plot here about root / sudo and being able to invoke either one of these:
sudo apt-get install system-config-samba
That is another problem entirely and I have little experience with that issue.
when prompted to enter a password (admin) it does not recognize it... I only have one password in this freshly installed system, no other user or password than the one i have created at installation and now use to enter the system...
By the way i get exactely same issue with NTFS configuration tool.
Side note: I wouldn't use ntfs-conf on a drunken bet but that's just me.
