I find the guide DIAGNOSIS.TXT that comes with Samba to be an extremely
useful resource when setting up servers. Follow the steps in it to find
out where your set up is failing - it covers everything that I've ever run
into. Also, look at the sample configuration files included with the Samba
package - they're there for a reason.
