This is what I am doing with Samba 1.9.16p11, but am now getting errors for
Samba 1.9.17a5.  Do I have to worry about NT servers being SP3 when I do
this?  Will compiling DES support fix my 1.9.17a5 errors for me?   This is
what I am seeing:

on Win95 when accessing the Samba server from Network Neighborhood:
\\SHOKK is not accessible.
The computer or sharename could not be found.  Make
sure you typed it correctly, and try again.

log.smb for that Win95 access:
smb_shm_open : mmap failed with code 11

smbclient to the Samba server:
Session request failed (0,0) with myname=SHOKK destname=SHOKK
Unspecified error 0x0
Your server software is being unfriendly.
