After reading docs several times I still can't get Windows ME machines
to map to my Red Hat 9 Linux machine.  I can connect from the Linux
machine but not to it. I'm connected through an SMC firewall/router and
have tried with the firewall shut down. I can ping the Linux machine
from Windows but NBTSTAT -A does not recognize the Linux box. My
smb.conf file is:

   workgroup = mshome
   server string = samba
   hosts allow =
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes
   printing = lprng
   log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
   max log size = 0
   security = user
   include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.%m
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
   interfaces =
   remote browse sync =
   remote announce =
   dns proxy = no 

#============================ Share Definitions
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = yes
   writable = yes
   valid users = %S
   create mode = 0664
   directory mode = 0775
   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = no
   guest ok = no
   writable = no
   printable = yes

comment = test comment by bob
path = /home/bob/
valid users = bob bobm142 mshome michael c325834-a workgroup
public = yes
writable = yes
printable = yes
create mask = 0765

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
