Helllo guys,

I used two linus books, one was a book called the
complete reference by Peterson from Mc Graw Hill and
another book called RH 7.2 bible, im not sure of the

But anyway, so i created a guest password and i
created a samba password and all and then i restarted

server can see the samba server but when i  click on
the server from the win2k Professional machine I cant

My question is, 

1) do i need to install a patch at the win2k machine?
If I do, boy did the authors miss that one out big

2)If its not the patch, what is it then?
