Did you check smbd was running OK? And that you don't have IPTables
blocking the connection attempts from the Mac?

Also you be aware that you need to define a separate SMB password from
your UNIX password.

smbpasswd -a baza

will create you a password that can be used to logon to your SMB
daemon. The default smb.conf file should allow you access to your home

Do you see much activity in /var/log/(smb|samba)/smb.log ?
