I have never been able to have my Linux client access folders and files
shared under Mac OS X Samba server. Apple replaced Samba with SMBX,
their home-cooked application for Windows File Sharing. By default, it
also doesn't do much logging. If you want to review logs, you'll have to
edit the launchd item. What a pain.
