Hi all,

	First of all I am running   (SunOS 5.5.1     Generic May 1996).

	My questions are about the Makefile.
			If I uncomment one of the lines, what variable must I use.

		(2)	If I don't uncomment the above then I get an error when running make.
				"./smb.h", line 1423: major: argument mismatch
				"./smb.h", line 1424: minor: argument mismatch
				"./smb.h", line 1423: syntax error before or at: int

				"./smb.h", line 1423: warning: syntax requires ";" after last struct/union member
				"./smb.h", line 1432: zero-sized struct/union
				"./smb.h", line 1432: cannot recover from previous errors
				*** Error code 10
				make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `util.o'

			If I delete these lines then I can run make.  Should these lines be deleted?

	I am still having inconsistent nr of files backed up.  I have shares on Win95 pcs that I need to backup.
	I have enabled wins resolution and my primary and secondary servers are the same, else I won't save
	the enable wins resolution.
		I am running smbclient '\\chuck\c' -N -Tc tar.out "\my documents" "\windows\desktop" "\windows\start menu".
		Every time I run the above command I receive different nr of files backed up.

	This is what my smb.conf file looks like.

workgroup = VERANG
    read only = No
    guest ok = yes

    path = /app1/sag/batch/prd/workfiles
    read only = No
    guest ok = yes
    valid users = chuck, brendan, peter, deon

    comment = Root Files
    path = /
    valid users = chuck, brendan, peter, deon

    wins support = yes
    wins proxy = yes
    domain master = yes
    local master = yes
    preferred master = yes
    os level = 65
    debug level = 0
    deadtime = 15
    share modes = yes
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_KEEPALIVE
    security = user

	Please can someone help???????

Thanking you in advance.
