I recently upgraded my laptop from Win2k to WinXP, and now Samba doesn't 
work.  I have two shares on my linux server (red hat 7.2) and under Win2k, 
they worked fine.  Now under XP, I cannot connect to them, I either get an 
"unknown username or bad password" error or "Network Path was not found" 
error.  I did not change the configuration of Samba at all between upgrades. 
  The error messages occur randomly, they change back and forth, with no 
apparent pattern.  Does WinXP not work with Samba anymore? (at one point a 
few months ago I could connect from WinXP) did MS release an "upgrade" that 
stops samba from working as per their threats?
