  Nope, no PC running windows. Just a Ubuntu machine and an Xbox  Both
machines are connected to an ethernet hub, which is in turn connected to a
cable modem.

Check the samba documentation on-line for information on how to do this.

Okay, when I do that I get

marc at marc-desktop:~$ ps -ef | grep mbd
root      4354     1  0 08:59 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/nmbd -D
marc     10576 10552  0 12:41 pts/0    00:00:00 grep mbd
marc at marc-desktop:~$
