Bob had responded (again, thanks Bob) with two suggestions.

1. Try connecting with the same user and password as on the
   unix side. I set up a new W2000 user account with name
   and password to match. When I click on the Network
   Neighbourhood, I still get the "Network path not found."
   described earlier.
2. Add an entry to the W2000 hosts file so that I could ping
   without having to resort to using the IP quad address. I
   appreciate taht I can do this, although our network uses
   DHCP, and I've no idea how to represent that in a hosts file.

I suspect that Samba is configured perfectly, and that my
problem is based on basic network connectivity.

Would those responding to this thread agree that I
should be able to ping the Linux box using it's NetBios
