Hi Robin,

I think you may have two problems:
1)Windows does not allow you to have two connections to the same machine
with different user accounts, so you need to make sure you have no
connectios before you join. The best option is usually to log in, and join
the machine as your first (or in the case on winxp, 2nd) action.

Finally, you may want updated RPMs for 8.2, you can find 2.2.5 on
ftp.samba.org, or others on my site
(http://ranger.dnsalias.com/mandrake/mandrake8.2), of course these are not
supported by Mandrakesoft (but they work great for me).
