Yes, I think that's the problem. ADMIN$ is a disk
share, but AS/U connects to it as a disk share then
starts doing IPC (RPC calls) down it.

That works on NT (obviously) and so when I emulated
it for Samba I created it as a disk share by design, but denied
any disk I/O on it as we only need it to support AS/U
IPC and don't really want a default share like that.

My plan is to get Herb to re-test with Andrews changes,
and if it breaks AS/U he may need to roll them back
(oooh - that would be a first to my knowledge :-) :-).


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
