No. But weather I have it or not it doesn't matter- it makes no difference.

But they do resolve names with no problems.

Also have it:
guest ok = yes
writeble = no
share modes = no

I can log in and see samba shares.

Nice to know, thanks.

Also didn't change anything (I remembered to restart samba after changes :-)
The problem is- I can log in, I can see samba shares, but when I try to
share my win folder from w98 box I have to add a user to access list. And
that's what I cannot do, cause windows says: "You cannot view the list of
users at this time. Please try again later". Some ethereal investigation
showed, that w98, when asking for user list, sets 'available buffer length'
to 66B and it gets error response from samba saing, that buffer should be 67B
long. That conversation repets 3 times, and then win'98 gives up.
