Ok, this is an indication of an unexpected disconnection
at the client. "Normal" disconnections let the client
clean up[ and reconenct if necessary.
It usually means some sort of serious network problem,
which is consistant with your getting "Network
Name not found".
Use netstat -s to see if there are any errors, and
optionally a sniffer to look at packets: feel free to
send me mail if you need help... this used to happen
to Bob Eckstein (of Samba book fame) all the time,
so I'm motivated to help you find the *@Q%#^#^!@! thing.
A hint: check and see if it's one particular client,
or a small number of clients, and then check that their
ethernet cards are set exactly the same as the hub
they're connected to: mixing 10/100 and half/full duplex
is a wonderfull way to get mysterious errors (;-))
