I have my Linux box setup net_masq (internet connection sharing) for a
windows XP PC.  I am using Mandrake 9.0.

I installed all the necessary RPMs for SAMBA and ran the wizard in SWAT
for the default setup.

I then made a user 'tufkal'

using smbclient i am able to log in to my home dir share.

But I cant get anything at all on the windows box.

net use z: \\hostnameofmyserver\tufkal

gets a prompt, but no suitable username/pass is accepted

browsing workgroup computers shows the samba server but nothing inside
it but errors

Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.2.7]
