[CentOS] Samba Setup Fails or Samba Access Fails

I recently installed centos 4.1 and I'm trying to get samba working on it to serve windows boxes on a lan. I configured samba on the centos server using the graphical samba server configuration tool, which is similar to the samba setup on redhat 9 that I have successfully setup in the past. I setup samba user names and passwords with the same user names and passwords used on the win boxes.
 
I'm not able to access any shared samba folders from win boxes on the lan. I disabled the firewall on the centos server using the graphical security level configuration tool but I still can't access the samba shares. When I use a win box to connect to samba it will not complete the connection. It acts like the firewall is still running.
 
I disabled iptables on the centos server using the graphical services configuration tool but I still can't access the samba shares.
 
I can ping the centos server from linux and windows boxes on the lan. The centos server can ping other machines on the lan and can access the internet.
 
When I try to telnet into the centos server from win and linux boxes on the lan I get these messages:
 
On linux boxes:
"Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused"
 
On win boxes:
“Connecting To 192.168.1.2...Could not open connection to the host, on port 23.
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.”
 
Can anyone tell me what I’m doing wrong or what I need to do to get samba
working on centos?
 
Thanks in advance,
 
Ken
