Server string in Network Neighbourhood

Luke et al,

Thanks for the responses but i'm afraid it still don't quite work - I now see \"11th instead of just "11th.  Could this be a quirk in W95 ?

BTW, if i run ps -ef | grep nmbd i see
     .....samba/nmbd -C\"11th Floor SGI O2\" -D
but under my previous arrangement (with NMBD_OPTS='-C"11th Floor SGI O2"') i get
     .....samba/nmbd -C"11th Floor SGI O2" -D
which seems more reasonable.

Unless anyone else has some more ideas, I think I'll be reverting to using underscores instead of spaces.

i believe that this should be NMBD_OPTS='-C\"11th Floor SGI O2\"'
