I think that was indeed it! It turns out the machine is "willow" but
the users login is "mswillow" :-). I didn't even notice that in the log
(I was seriously into seeing "willow" there). I changed the smbusers
jeanne = mswillow
and she wasn't even asked for a password, just zoooooom :-) right in!
Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!
Hehe, I got caught "assuming" :-/ <blush>.
Thanks VERY VERY VERY much for your help and also to everyone else who
gave me a lot of good info!
Much appreciated! Hehe, after three days of dealing with this, you
don't know how much :-)!
Now I am going to go look at the old server and see why it was working
Thanks again & take care, Vikki (who is VERY happy :-).
