[Samba] Is there something missing?

    From out previous discussions it really seems like this is a client side
problem.  I took a look at the smb.conf file you sent me and if just changed
the windows setting to logon to that server you would automatically see the
home directory you want(I always tell it to use H:, logon drive = H: in
smb.conf).  What most people don't realize is that even though you may not
see any login during bootup of 9x/ME there is still a user associated with
that computer.  That user name has to match the username on samba for it
work like you want, KISS, just do the login and everything will work fine.
