I have seen the post on the board a number of times about not be able to use
long file names with windows and samba.  I am having the same problems
logging my Windows 98 workstations into my samba server.  I always get
'access denied' when running a batch file that has a long file name.  It
will run executionables with long file names, but not batch files.  If I
logon to an NT 4.0 server it will run the long file named batch file on this
server. I was just curious if anyone knew what the problem was.
