Pull up samba on your linux machine. Click on preferences. Click on
Samba Users. Select a user account and use it as the "guest account". I
usually just have the directories I share as "read only". On your
Windows 7, click on the folder icon on the task bar. Click on the
computer your sharing from then the directory your wanting to be able to
access. (This is assuming you've already set up the directory as a share
in samba). When you click on that directory, it should just pull it up.
