After installing Samba 2.2.7.a on Linux machine, I can use "smbclient" to
access Windows machines, see the files and transfer files.
Linux machine info:
share folder name: gong
valid user: gong
Windows Xp machine info:

log in password: 710224
On Linux machine, I can use:
smbclient //WINNY/gong -U gong%710224
//this command runs successfully, so that the Linux Samba server
// and it can accept user name and password.

On Xp machine, I use:
net use z: \\WINNY\gong /user:gong
// it doesn't work, it reported: "The network path was not found".
try to open log.winny file, but it doesn't exist. Therefore, the Samba
