[techtalk] Accessing multiple Samba shares

I have defined 2 shares in my smb.conf. When I try to access these
shares from the NT box, I can access only USER1 home directory. For USER2,
I always get the login dialog. I have used smbpasswd to add USER2, but still
can't access it. How do I access USER2 account too?

One other issue, is the umask for all the users on Linux is set to 027.
All I can see for USER1, is some dot files. Nothing else. How do I get to
list all the files in a share?

This is my smb.conf 


# Global parameters
	workgroup = TRAMP
	netbios name = myhost
	server string = myhost
	syslog only = yes
	log level = 2
	log file = /var/log/samba.log
	max log size = 50000
	debug timestamp = yes
        security = user
        encrypt passwords = yes
        smb passwd file = /var/samba/private/smbpasswd
	unix realname = yes
	browseable = no
	map archive = yes
	map system = yes
	map hidden = yes
	create mask = 744
	comment = %U Home Directory
	path = %H
	username = user1
	valid users = user1
	writeable = yes
	read only = no
	browseable = yes
	case sensitive = no

	comment = %U Home Directory
	path = %H
	username = user2
	valid users = user2
	writeable = yes
	read only = no
