 Hello All, 
I am new to Linux and Samba, and have RH7.3 with Samba 
2.2.5 installed on my Win2K domain (mixed mode).  I am 
testing RH7.3 as a file server so that I can integrate it 
into one (for now only one) of our client's Win2K domains.  
Running wbinfo I can retrieve a list of domain user and 
group accounts, and in webmin when assigning permissions 
to Samba shares I can choose these domain user accounts.   
I can browse in My Network Places from a Win2K Pro machine 
no problem, and I can access a share called BV32 which I 
created.  When I try to copy a directory from my 
workstation to the server, it copies very slowly and then 
stops with an error saying that the file is too deep.  
Please help.  If I can get this one Linux server to work 
for this one client, then they will tell all of their 
clients about it, and then I can spread Linux goodness to 
65+ people all over the country.  I appreciate your help 
in advance.  I have included a copy of my smb.conf below.  
Thank you again .
