	2.0 isn't working on linux for me either.  It appears to be a
problem w/ authentication.  I can't log in from a Win98 box or from the
same machine w/ smbclient.  SWAT won't authenticate either.  I haven't had
much of a chance to try and track this down.  Must be some sort of
autoconf/make problem (maybe a missing library?).
	I'd suggest that Linux users use the last pre-2.0 version until
this gets fixed.
