Samba and java

I note that your class name is mixed case (; is it possible that

you are running into a case problem?  You might give the parameters:
preserve case
preserve case lower
case sensitive
in the smb.conf file a peek, and see if some combination of these would
Take a look (from the UNIX side) to see exactly how the class file was
and then maybe do a log level=10 run of the java program to look and verify 
the case of how the program is looking for the class name matches what you
have on the share...
Hope this helps,

and thanks

no we were just tring to run a command like 
java myJava.class
from the X: prompt
this is after compiling the java file like so


the compile is fine but the byte code won't run from the root directory

the VM reports that it can't find the myJava class.
