Thanks in advance Urban.

My actual kernel version is 2.2.14-12 and
                    samba version is 2.0.6-9

The problem is that I have a NT Server acting as password and user validator
using the options in the /etc/smb.conf, and the net is working more and more
slowly when
I trie to reach some disc unit shared with samba.

    security = server
    password server = name_of_nt_server

Two more questions:
- There is a form in order to use the samba server to make the password and
user validations without passing trough Nt Server ?
- When can I found information about the samba errors codes.

Thanks you.
