I think the one thing you might be missing is a "workgroup"
configuration. My global section looks like this:
workgroup = workgroup
server string = CentOS Samba Server
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
cups options = raw
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
dns proxy = no
template shell = /bin/false
password server = None
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
winbind use default domain = no
The workgroup of the windows machine and the centos machine have to
match. The default workgroup on windows is "mygroup" IIRC. Note also
that I don't have a "security" setting but I don't think that makes a

nmbd could be important.
