To whom it may concern,
	I have been trying to figure out what has been going wrong with my setup of
samba server.  I am configuring the package that was sent with Red Hat Linux
7.2, but have not been able to get it to work.  For three days now I have
been stuck on step eight of the diagnosing step and my server keeps
returning the error that and "unexpected network error has occured".  I have
configured and reconfigured according to the guidelines in this step, to no
avail and have not really been able to get an error message.  The funny
thing is I have another samba server that will run on my network and it has
been configured almost exactly the same.  The only difference is that all my
Linux servers are unable to see computers on the network unless I put
entries on the lmhosts file.  I assumed they should be able to do this
through WINS or DNS.  Please help with this Samba problem.
