I was using winscp for a while since I had sshd set up anyway, and that worked alright but http is faster.

The connection was refused when attempting to contact 127.0.0.1:901
I am using Red Hat 8.0 and i find it under: extras - server settings - samba configuration.
How can i configure it?

That is the linux documentation project's guide to configuring samba.

Login as root
Open the directory /mnt
Create a new directory in /mnt call it something like windowsHD
Open the file fstab in the /etc directory with your favourite text editor and add this line......
/dev/hda?/mnt/windowsHD auto user, defaults 0 0 hda?
hda? ....... ? = the linux reference to the partion ie. hda1 hda2 hda3 whatever it is on your system
Right click on your desktop in kde and choose the option "create new drive" set device path as dev/hda? then mount point as /mnt/windowsHD and name it so you can recognise it ie windowsHD.
Thats it click on the icon boom there is the contents of your windows partition this will also work for multi HDD systems. To access it from the command line simply open /mnt/windowsHD
Hope this is useful for you too.
