Sharing problems

       I have a problem, kindly help me.   I had installed Samba 2.0.7 in a
Solaris 8 server in a windows NT worgroup setup and in the smb.conf file had
shared individually all the folders.  It was working fine.  Now we have
converted out NT systems to Domain setup.  Now I tried to point samba
validations to the NT PDC.  It was not working properly.  Then I totally
uninstalled, deleted all the folders and reinstalled samba.  Now I removed
all the individual shares and shared the Home folder.  And I configured for
NT Domain validation.  Now it is working correctly.

       The problem is when we open the system in Network Neighborhood it is
showing 2 shares with different names (but pointing to the same folder)
whereas I have specified only one share in the smb.conf file.  Can anyone
tell me from where it is taking the other share details.  I tested the
smb.conf file with testparm command and it is specifying only the share that
is in the smb.conf file.

       I would be very thankful if helped.
