Before starting the process, disable seLinux.  I am sure that there is a way to get this to work without disabling it but for simplicity I will go ahead and disable.

Install the needed packages:

yum install samba samba-client samba-common

Setup the services so that they will start when the system starts:

chkconfig smb on
chkconfig nmb on

Next, add the needed firewall rules:

sudo iptables -I INPUT 4 -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 137 -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -I INPUT 5 -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 138 -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -I INPUT 6 -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 139 -j ACCEPT
sudo service iptables save

Then start the needed processes:

service smb start
service nmb start

Edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and add these lines:

#======================= Global Settings =====================================
 workgroup = WORKGROUP
 security = share
 map to guest = bad user
#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
 path = [path to directory]
 browsable =yes
 writable = yes
 guest ok = yes
 read only = no

Then just restart you samba services (smb and nmb).  You should now be able to connect to your shares.
