Thanks Michael,

> You will need to either properly join the Samba installation to AD and
configure it accordingly or just use credentials local to Samba set
using smbpasswd.

Now comes the stupid question:

Is samba a default component of unix, or is it something added to it?
In other words, is it possible that this specific unix server simply
doesn't have samba on it?
A bit of googling about shows a few linux pages, but no simple 'unix
samba admin guide'.

Without samba, are there other way to see a unix share from a windows

Feel free to RTFM me to the appropriate google key words: I am a bit out
of my depth here, and that unix box is managed by unhelful BOFH
wannabes, hence the stupid question.

Thanks again for your help.
