How have you defined the share (service) in smb.conf?
From what you've posted, it looks to me like you've only mounted the drive
such that it is visible to the machine hosting Samba, but not shared
*through* Samba as a service. As a result, no one would be able to see it,
because Samba isn't serving it up as a fileshare.
Hope that makes some sense.....
