That's definitely wrong. It neets to be (if using the following example)


ie use the samba share name, not path to directory.


  comment = Locally shared directory, Cisco
  path = /home/racket/downloads/cisco
  valid users = mark anne      #user mark has ben added to Linux box
with a password
  public = no
  writable = yes
  printable = no
  create mask = 0765
