You may also have to place the directory that is going to be shared in the /etc/dfs/dfsshares file, then do a shareall. I'm not quite sure if this is necessary, though, using samba.

This is only for NIS and NIS+.

Samba has a config file and you just list the dir. in that file that you want to share along w/ some other paramiters.
