    That should have been it given the state of your install. If you can't see the Linux box from your OSX machine you could use the miracle of avahi ( which is the Linux implementation of Apple's Bonjour ):

    [1] Create a file:
    gksu gedit /etc/avahi/services/samba.service
    [2] Add the following to the file:
    <?xml version="1.0" standalone='no'?>
    <!DOCTYPE service-group SYSTEM "avahi-service.dtd">
        <name replace-wildcards="yes">%h SMB</name> ## Display Name
    [3] Then save the file.

    ** Make sure avahi is running:
    sudo service avahi-daemon status
    ** And if you have a firewall in the way on Lubuntu disable it or at least make sure ports 445 and 5353 are open.

    You should see it in OSX's Finder as "server210 SMB"
