Hi -
	I set up samba 1.9.18p4 on Solaris 2.6 and have things working for
the most part.  One strange thing though.  One a Win95 client when I type:

net use g: \\host\philip

I connect just fine, but when I type:

net use g: \\\philip

I get the following errror:

Error 53: The computer name specified in the network path cannot be
located.  Make sure you are specifying the computer name correctly, or try
again later when the remote computer is available.

However, I can ping both host and just fine.

I'm not sure where to even begin to look for the answers... any pointers?
