Recently installed Debian and completely new to linux. Installed Samba package and selected the shared folder. On my windows machine, I can see the linux box but not a folder or drive under it. The folder is shared under linux with SMB (also tried NFS). The Windows machine has TCP/IP, IPX/SPX and Netbios protocols. When I bring up the add network place window, I can see the box but no folder/drive. When I right click to add it, I get a login window but no login I type in works. Tried the root and user I set up with installation.

Need help with this but also could someone recommend a complete noob guide to linux? All the sites I’ve read are not easy for complete beginers.
