You might consider installing samba from ports and then edit the
example /usr/local/etc/smb.conf.default as smb.conf.
It usually comes with some good example entries that imho are
easy to understand and tweak according to your likening.
=> cd /usr/ports/net/samba (for 2.2.9)
   cd /usr/ports/net/samba-devel (for 3.0.4)
   make package

Then have a look at /usr/local/etc/rc.d/, ie rename to so samba will be started on system boot.

man smb.conf
man smbd
man nmbd

are also quite helpful.
