Dear Juan,

i have a page up a http://www.s-it.com.au/gmc/ describing my efforts
to get smbwrapper and a fairly recently cvs gmc cooperating. It worked
for me with a little hacking so it should work with vanilla MC. There's
a couple of pictures of gmc with the workgroup, share and directory

Hoping this can be of some help,
