Ok, first of all, I'm a newbie too, but I've got mine successfully set up to at least download from other computers.
Don't make the same mistake I did and try and try before you figure out you don't even have samba installed!
Then, if you're just looking to see the files off one of your other boxes (no uploading to them), all you should have to do is run a program like XSMbrowser (you can get it here) and browse to your other box manually.
However, if you're looking to run a samba server (IE, you can have the other boxes see your shares), someone else will have to help you cause I can't ever get past "username/password" problems, even with full unrestricted acces.

for the most part i would be happy just being able to get stuff off my desktop onto the laptop. (laptop being the linux box) so that XSMbrowser will do that?
i must be missing something i can't figure out how to work XSMbrowser

Right, firstly, you need to edit your /etc/samba/samba.conf to suit your network. It is pretty self-explanatory. Also, don't use SMBMOUNT to mount do it this way:
mount -t sambafs -o username=user,rw //server/share /mnt/network
If you are connecting to a windows box with Linux, you need to specify a username and password for a user that exists on that box, if there is not password and it is a win9x machine, you can just add guest instead of username in the mount command.
To allow windows users to see your shares, you must create those users on the linux box using adduser.
Also, check your LAN card is configured correctly and they are on the same subnet._____

ummmm ok i tried editing it a bit. i added a few things that it had but were wrong. and i type that whole slue of stuff and it don't work. i get a "fs type sambafs not supported by kernel" and here is what i typed in
mount -t sambafs -o username=administrator,rw //name/mp3s /mnt/mp3s and this time it just kind of locked up my shell.
all i want to be able to do is have access to some shares that are on my windows box so i don't have to keep using floppies. (access as in read/write)
ok jsut tried it again but spelled admin. right and i got a not supported by kernel

Make sure you have your smb.conf done correctly, and it would be a god idea to add the sambafs module to your kernel.
ENSURE that the workgroup and WINS server information is set up properley._____
