Dear Patrick,

sorry I cannot help you with your problem by now, mostly because I suffer it too. I already posted my problems several times and I'm
still waiting for a solution.

As workaround, try to find the Samba Server using the "Start -> Find" utility of Win95 and see if it works. You should be able to
"mount" UNIX shares on the PC using a command like "net use x: \\sambaserver\share".

In my case, there's a problem with the PROTOCOL.INI file:

    "MSDLC module not found in PROTOCOL.INI

    DLC load failure"

so I would be very thankfull if somebody sends me a correct (generic?) PROTOCOL.INI file. Or, if you think the problem might be
anywhere else, please let me know.

Thanks in advance and I hope this helps!

Best regards,

M at rtin
