i know this quesiton has probably been asked a lot but i cant find a solution other than things i have already done.

issue is: I have a windows 7 laptop on wireless and a Imac pro lion lastest updated, I have enabled smb sharing for lion. I have an external hard drive connected to the mac via USB. I have shared it out. on the imac i can see the hp laptop but can not login to any shares on it with the local user id and password on the laptop nor can i browse to the mac on the windows laptop and access the shared external hard drive. I can ping both machines from windows and vice versa so no issue their they are alive. i just cant get the hard drive shared out properly for the windows laptop to see it and access it. is there a tutortial out there for step step any help would be appreicated thanks.
