I was having problems similar to Jerry's
* RH 7.2 with EXT3
* Win2000 was saying the saying the Box is not accessible
* Although I could ping the box, I could not telnet to it.
This was with a windoze machine with two NIC's and I thus purchased a
Linksys 4 port Cable/DSL router and could now surf the net from my RH
box and telnet to it. Apache works from it. The samba situation got
worse however as I can not even see the machine in network neighborhood
now although I can see the work group.
The router maybe adding complications as I need to have my Linux box
using DHCP, although it is continually at the same local IP address.
I have tried sample smb.conf and one from work. Webmin sees all the
shares from the smb.conf I copied from work and seems to hint that
everything is OK.
I may triy re-installing
* Fighting with smb.conf for a while longer
* Static IP adr, removing DHCP
* RH 7.2 but with Ext2,
* Suse 7.3
