Howto: Adding share in samba server under Linux or UNIX
Q. How do I add share called incoming? This share definitions should be linked up to directory called /home/incoming.
A. You can define a share using samba configuration file itself. Open /etc/samba/smb.conf file and add code snippet as follows:
# vi /etc/samba/smb.conf
Add following code:

Save close the file. Restart Samba :
# /etc/init.d/samba restart

# service smb restart
