I have thought that I have samba misconfigured, and I bought a book and
have been reading and reading the posts here, to no avail......I have
tried trouble shooting too. at home I have an even stranger problem. I
have a three machine network, an NT server, a win98 box and a linux
samba server.the NT box is running WINS, no PDC, security on the samba
server is user. and i can't see it in the network neighborhood, and i am
using a smb.conf file I had here. anyway I am going to get this thing
