Yes, its as you say 0x0 and it has saved my butt too in the NT-TSE.  In the distribution- fix it 


Which is wrong as you say..

Okay, my mistake.  I suspected that he ment the registry fix did not work, but I had to put it in 
to make sure he had tried it.  My additional suggestion was the "nt smb support = no".

W2K might have changed the required registry key to modify or maybe removed the 
feature?  Ill see what I can find in the W2K related newsgroups/lists.

How about looking into the 2048 open file limitation?  Would it be possible to increase this 
value on a W2K server?  This might required some changes in the max-values in 
the smb.conf file and also the unix/linux system parameters.
