I have two debian systems on my network. One has a Debian stable install
which allows me to share with no problems. I have a newer install which is
Debian frozen but I cannot browse shared  directories at all. I beleive the
smb.conf is the same on both boxes, I have messed with the permissions to no
avail. I'm fairly new to Samba but I have not had problems installing

Here's the output from smbclient for the problem box - Linny:

Linny:~# smbclient -L Linny
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Domain=[OFFICE] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.0.7]

I don't know why box "Firewall" is master, I didn't want that. Each box
should be independent. I don't use a PDC on my network.
