Hello all.
I've already joined the domain, even rejoined, but the problem prevails.
Please help. Does the WinNT machine need Server service to be installed?
Workstation service is installed, and I don't want to browse the NT machine.
Thanks, Trevor

 P.S: Operating System: Red Hat 7.3
         Samba Version:    2.2.3.a
