Hmm some progress has been made.

I removed the smb.conf file and wrote a new  one manually but  for
some reason it only wants to let me connect as "Guest" and not a real
user with some privileges?

workgroup = my group
server string = Mars
netbios name = Mars
security = SHARE
load printers = no
encrypt passwords = yes
guest ok = no

path = /home/mars
writeable = yes
valid users = mars
public = no
available = yes
printable = no
