[Nelug] Sharing CD-ROM over Samba on Fedora 9

Hi Richard,

My logs are empty nothing in them.... When I try to access cdrom it has 
a good long hard think about it (20-30 seconds) then comes up with

\\Epia\cdrom is not accessible. You might not have permission to use 
this network resource....

There isn't a /cdrom folder no

Where is the best place to put this directory ? should I just create it 
in the root of the filesystem ?
