    there is an samba web admin tool
    not sure whats its name is

    but you do an it via the smb.conf file
    file is at /etc/samba/smb.conf


    add to it at the bottom

    [usb-hdd]
    comment = my usb hard drive
    path = /mnt/usb-hdd1
    public = yes
    writable = yes
    printable = no
    write list = zcworld


    save the file and try to access it
    it you cant access
    restart samba

    << samba is still new to me but i do now how to add folders to it :)>>
