Thanks for advices you gave, hopefully they'll help.
(right now i can't reach the computer class)

>Sounds like symptoms of activated Web Client service.
I found some references about Web Client somewhere (don't
remember where right now), ant even tried to turn it off,
but mistakenly i turned off Win support for IPC$ (after
a day of digging info on the Web and trying to fix it :),
and after i recognized what exactly i've done, i stopped
considering turning off Web Client as a way to solve the

Definitely i missed this topic a few months ago, since i
started ANY using of samba only in July this year. But
probably several of links i googled about Web Client were
on the Samba mailing list.

>By the way, I still can't figure out what FAR is.
FAR is File Manager, like WinExplorer, but styled like
old DOS-time file managers -- Norton Commander, Volkov
Commander, Dos Navigator. Differences from WinExplorer
are mainly having two panels for keyboad-friendlyness
and having support for many tools and actions (like
archivers, not using win file aliases and even mostly
not using win extracters) and having may builtin tool
on their own.

Hmm. This seems really offtopic, but if it gave
you a tiny bit of useful knowlege, i'm happy :).

Actually, not a taste, but a language -- russian.
