Has anyone tuned this "passwd chat =" line yet?  From reading the docs I
this is what it seems to say also, but it doesn't help and say for a
NT workstation this is what it's expecting.  With as good as Oriely
books are,
I cannot believe that the authors didn't include at least one good
example of
this.  Does anyone have one they would care to share of changing a samba
password from a Windows NT Workstation?
