the problem described below is a powerpoint 97 problem only.
after an upgrade to powerpoint 2000 everything works fine.
I know know that it is no samba problem but this won't help
much because a general upgrade of powerpoint is not possible.
The thousands of windows pc's are administrated by another
company and they don't care about our sambaserver for about
So we have to use powerpoint 97.
If anybody knows how to solve the problem or where to find a
document that I'm not aware about please let me know.
Any hint is welcome !!!
