suse linux 6.0 (lernal 2.0) and samba 1.9 work nicely together. I just
formatted and reinstalled 6.0 and samba 1.9 . Hopefully I will be able to
incrementaly move the kernal foward to 2.2.5 and insure that all is working
, then mostlikly move from samba 1.9 to 2.0.3. 

Suse 6.1 / kenr 2.2.5 and samba 2.0.3 is realy giving me a ton of trouble.
I cant run a smbclinet susessfully without passing the ip address or do a
smbmoubt to work with out passing the ip address. Realy fustrating.
MNor will amny thing come up in network nieborhood , however I can still
map the drives to shared directrys on the server. 

I am hoping it was somthing stupid and trivial , but man what a bear to
deal with. I do thinh the 2.2.5 kernal was faster , it seems that the java
app we have runs much slowere with the 2.0 kernal. So mostlikly that will
be the fist thing changed , then i can chang samba 1.9 to 2.0.X
