are you using Windows xp, barf?
No MacOSX Tiger with Windows sharing and Ubuntu with Samba
I also didn't need a lmhost file. I even didn't use any username or pass, only the ip of my pc. The only things I had to do were to disable the netBIOS over TCP/IP and to enable the WINS server. (At least I think so; tested this about a month ago, so I don't know if I remember everything right.)
It's like I said on another post: Windows and networking has always been and will always be a tricky thing. On most machines it runs like a charm, on others you can turn yourself upside down without any chance to get it work correctly.
I got Samba working too now, apparantly a night's rest helped me look at my settings clearly. I thought I had disabled the netBIOS over TCP/IP when I first started setting things up but I was wrong, I had the "Default" box checked under "Local Area Network Properties" ->"TCP/IP Properties" -> "Advanced" -> "WINS". So I changed that to "Disabled" and I didn't fiddle with the WINS server at all. I do have a lmhosts in mc0 though, so now that it works I will go back to my original setup where all I used was a name to login without a password and try again. I can stream music on my PS2 from my PC right now although the MyPS2 file browser was a bit slow when trying, even froze up a couple of times but it does work. Here's what is working for me now with my PC named "leomachine" and User/Pass:"Leo/0000" to access my "D" drive with a shared folder named "Music"
Thank you everyone who helped.
hrm, so it was a Netbios issue, eh? What exaclty does this setting do? I mean, if i disable it, will it have a negative impact or sideeffect on the rest of the machines on my LAN? I would rather not touch the setting if thats the case and leave MyPS2 without Samba working.
Oh, and glad to see you got it working, snake. I'll update the guide as soon as i can get it working.....not that i don't trust you, its just that i wanna try and see for myself too.
I don't know too much about that stuff someone like Dlanor would be in a good position to explain here. I read about the NetBios and lmhosts in the Readme.html in the docs folder that came with MyPS2 1.2 download and in this thread. I haven't seen any problems on my network, yet, since I disabled NetBios. I went back to my older setup of no password with a User name and it works fine. GoodLuck, hopefully you get this sorted. Please post any issues you might have with your network if you disable NetBios. Cheers

@ Snakehands and sk545:
For some more info about disabling netBIOS read this thread posts 11-18.
How-To updated to include Samba. I did get it working, w00t. Let me know if i should add or delete content from the guide, since i am not perfect.
Thanks to everyone here, good luck hacking.
Nice tutorial, but having a username & password is not required.
Here is the xml code I have been using to access my C drive from myps2, also people should make sure that they set the proper permissions on any firewall they might have installed.
