Could you pls help.

Did you do any basic network trouble shooting like ping the samba server
from the windows host by servername and the ip addy? Start there. You should
also need to disable windows simple file sharing in the Tools Menu. Have a
look at wiki.centos.org there is great how to there about how to do all
this. You will also need to define samba or unix users on your samba server.
