Okay I got the user account setup.  The only mystery is how do i check
wither the user account have access to share?  I mean I used explore and
clicked the share button and the hand icon appeared on the folder.  Yet
I still can't see the folder from Linux.

Another thing, I was just playing with Samba a few minuts back.  I was
able to get : 

added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Got a positive name query response from ( )
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]

        Sharename      Type      Comment
        ---------      ----      -------
Error returning browse list: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------

        Workgroup            Master
        ---------            -------
        WORKGROUP            Server1

when no password was entered.  I wonder could it be win2k only excepts
encrypted password and I did not set it correctly on the linux side?
