On my network I have three (3) WinME boxes that log onto a Samba-2.2.8
network and mount samba shares (off my SuSE Linux servers) without any

Please send me you rsmb.conf file (off list) and I will review it for you.
After I get a handle on how you are configuring samba we will need to
	1. Do you have any firewall settings on your samba server?
	2. What are the TCP/IP settings on your MS WinME boxes?
