Currently, I am running Samba 2.2.5 and Winbind, I got to the point where I could issue the command /usr/local/samba/bin/wbinfo -u and it would list correctly all users.


I am on my Windows 2000 server; I click on the "My
Network Places" icon and click on the Linux computer icon (home),
and an error message appeared "\\home <file://\\home> is not accessible. The network path was not found"
I also mapped a drive to home \\\administrator <file://\\\administrator>, and a dialog box appeared. I put in the Windows domain user name and password, but an error message said "Incorrect password or unknown user name for: \\\administrator <file://\\\administrator>". Home has an ip address of The computer WIN-2000-SERVER is connected behind home and obtain a DHCP address from home.

Please tell me what parameter to set in smb.conf so that browse and map to a drive would work. Thank you for your help.
