Ok, I beg you dont flame me! - I know I have posted problems on this before.
I just felt that I might get a better response if I post a more detailed description.
I am trying to share files between my Ubuntu Linux and Mac OS X.
Ubuntu is running on VMWARE - (Virtual Machine).
I have installed Samba -
Created a samba password using:
sudo smbpasswd -a <username>
sudo smbpasswd -a shane
sudo vi /etc/samba/smbusers
administrator = "shane"
For testing purposes I am using the password "support"
I have configured the shared home directories as expected.
On the mac:
Finder -> GO -> Connect to server
I enter the details in the image below.
Then there is a pause when connecting like so:
I am then presented with this window:
I change the fields (using the password "support") like so:
I click connect and this is what I get :
If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate hearing them.
If anyone has spotted that I have done something wrong it would be a great help to point it out.
I think I should add that I am using Ubuntu Server with no GUI (Command Line Only).

Try adding the name of one of your Samba shares after smb://192.168.1.20/. Another thing to check is that you have added "MSHOME" to Directory Access and SMB/CIFS configuration. Directory Access can be found in your Utilities folder.
