Here is a more advanced (but simple to follow) set of instructions for working with SAMBA.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpSamba

For a quick and easy way to share files across a network openly:

Go to terminal and type:

Code:
sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf


Then scroll to the bottom of the file and just copy and paste the following for each folder you wish to add:
Code:

[folder_name]
path=/[FOLDERLOCATIONHERE]
available=yes
read only=yes
browsable=yes
public=yes
writable=yes


Then save and back in terminal type :

Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart


happy days Very Happy
