You are doing this with rawhide I trust.  
You need to mark the files you are sharing with 


chcon -R -t samba_share_t PATH_TO_SHARE

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2005-01-11 04:53:45 EST
This is with FC3
I tried the command and this is the output

s/WTLD80us.HST to system_u:object_r:samba_share_t: Invalid argument
chcon: failed to change context of /home/data_cc/brec to
root:object_r:samba_share_t: Invalid argument
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2005-01-11 09:50:27 EST
Ok, my mistake.  samba_share_t is not defined in FC3, so SELinux
should not be governing anything with samba.

When you say turn SELinux on, are you talking about changing it from
permissive to enforcing or disabled to inforcing.  If you booted a
machine disabled and then want to turn on SELinux,  You have to relabel.
The easiest way to do that is to
touch /.autorelabel

Even though I got the error messages it seems to be working now

I turned off via security level tool and rebooted
