Hi Gerald (Jerry) Carter,

I think, this is what you mean:

[2003/04/19 18:52:47, 3] smbd/reply.c:reply_sesssetup_and_X(880)
  Domain=[TOMMAIK]  NativeOS=[Windows 2002 2600 Service Pack 1]
NativeLanMan=[Windows 2002 5.1]

But Samba then creates a directory Win2K and not WinXP as profile
After that the recognition is okay as I can see it, if I accessing a
share and let me send a NETBIOS message with %a.
