Re: HOWTO: Setup Samba peer-to-peer with Windows
Maybe I'm mistaken but the title is "Setup Samba peer-to-peer with Windows" then the OP goes into modifying the Samba config files. Which isn't really necessary anymore and will likely confuse and cause more problems unless you really know what your doing.

Most of the newer versions can share from the file properties etc. But that can also get complicated. I started out sharing like that but then for managing those files it gets confusing. You have to know and remember all of your shares and their paths for management. If you just have 1 or 2. Not too big of a problem but if you have multiple and maybe longer paths. Then it gets hard to keep track of all your shares. So especially for beginners using System-Config-Samba is just simple to use and all your shares are listed in one place.
