    Samba troubles (ubuntu 10.04)

    A few funny issues. Been running all over the forums, google, etc. changing smb.conf, removing, installing samba....ech.

    Guest and User Access
    When smb.conf is set to "security = user"
    when I login as user "super", I can successfully access all shares (this is desired behavior)
    I am unable to login as a guest

    When smb.conf is set to "security = share"
    when I login as user "super", I can only access the public share. Both shares still appear.
    when I login as a guest I can access the public share; access is denied for the private share (this is desired behavior)

    Shared Folders
    "Sharing services are not installed"
    No matter how I install Samba (whether thought Synaptic, Ubuntu Software Center or following this dialogue box) this message appears...over and over.

    Not a big issue for me, but annoying and poor show for Ubuntu...

    Here's my smb.conf:
    Code:
    [global]
    workgroup = workgroup
       server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
       log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
      max log size = 1000
       syslog = 0
       map to guest = bad user
    guest account = nobody
    username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
    smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
    security = user
    
    [private]
    	path = /home/super/Downloads
    	browseable = yes
    	available = yes
    	writeable = yes
    	valid users = super
    
    [public]
    	path = /home/super/Public/
    	browseable = yes
    	available = yes
    	writeable = yes
    	guest ok = yes
    my /etc/samba/smbusers:
    Code:
    root = administrator
    nobody = guest pcguest smbguest
    thanks!
