Hello List, 

A special thanks to Mr John Terpstra for helping me get back on the 
straight and narrow with an install of Samba 2.2.5 on RH8 . 

1)I needed to remember the installation is linux centric,  do the 
permission's based on linux ........
2)I needed authorization to access the files, if you set " permission's to 
''share",    make "share" the viable choice in globals ...... 
3)don't create smbpasswd as a directory       <dooohhh>
4)smbpasswd -a      <linux user>       on the command line
5) don;t do an old version        ! 
6) read more........before starting a hasty fix,,, 
7)make sure DNS is updated----- not necessarily for Samba

I realize that 99% of you have done this successfully, and sorry to bend 
the bandwidth with redundancy.   So drink a beer; Tiago, you drink a 
cerveza and all have a good day/night.

Oh and someone should hire John, he really knows what he is doing. 

Adios, ciao, cheers,
