Bula Samba
I'm having difficulty in sharing files of my Mandrake 9.1 webserver thru
Samba. I am able to see the files thru a W2K client, however upon browsing
the error message reads:
"the network name cannot be found". A check in the /var/log/syslog reports:
"smbd/service.c:make_connection(599) jim-2k ( Can't change
directory to /home/httpd/html/files (Permission denied)

If someone has encountered this problem before I'd appreciate your
assistance. Oh the smb.conf file reads:

path = /home/httpd/html/files
writable = yes
browseable = yes
comment = SOPAC Files
create mask = 2664
write list = @fileauthors
