Thank you for the reply but it didn't work, the problem I think I am having is one of it not mounting and unmounting the cdrom.
Fedora 8 mounts the cdroms in the /media folder however a folder with
the name of the cdrom shows up there, i.e. say for example I had a cdrom
with the name "FedoraList" I would have /media/FedoraList in that folder
which makes it difficult to share the cdrom drive itself.
Also would it be possible for someone to explain this to me as I didn't
understand it :-
# If you want to run scripts (preexec/root prexec/print command/...) please
# put them into the /var/lib/samba/scripts directory so that smbd will be
# allowed to run them.
# Make sure you COPY them and not MOVE them so that the right SELinux context # is applied, to check all is ok use restorecon -R -v /var/lib/samba/scripts
I dont understand where to get the scripts from to put them in that folder.

I am using ;-

root preexec = /sbin/mount /media/cdrom
root postexec = /sbin/umount /media/cdrom

       comment = Home Directories
       browseable = no
       writable = yes

       comment = Linux CD-ROM
       path = /media/cdrom
       read only = yes
       locking = no
       writable = no

The home directories work fine with security = user, however they disappear leaving on the cdrom folder showing with security = share, the cdrom folder however still doesn't share the contents of the cdrom though.
I've got selinux disabled, and also this is my output from df -k.

Try to change

security = user
security = share

It might help you.

I was just wondering if any of you have any experience of sharing a cd-rom
over samba, i'm not having very much luck in getting it working you see,
have googled and search a lot and I think I am very close to getting it
working, but am kinda stuck as to what else I could do from where I am, so I
am really looking for a few pointers/tips/ideas.

comment = CD-ROM
path = /cdrom
writable = no
locking = no
public = yes
read only = yes
valid users = %S

This is what i'm using at the moment and it shows up on the windows pc but it asks for a password when I try to connect, but none of the users set up on the box or in the smbpasswd file work and root doesn't work either, it
just keeps poping up asking for the password again no matter what I try.

Why don't you just copy the contents of the cd to a folder and share the folder with samba? why do you want to share the cdrom device( i am not sure you can anyway)? As you pointed out the path to the cd is /media/? so why are you trying to share /media/cdrom(is the cd named cdrom?)? Either your making things to complicated or I don't understand what you are doing. Please explain in one syllable terms if possible.
If opinions were really like assholes the we'd each have just one
