Hi Dragan

Thanks for your reply. I have been using the absolute latest rpcclient
from Samba 3 CVS, so I expect that the bug is fixed. It installs the
drivers but not such that WinNT/TSE can use. However WinXP can use
exactly the same ones. Apart from a feature (not necessarily a bug) in
rpcclient that WinNT/TSE doesn't like, the only other possible thing I
can imagine is a problem with permissions in my installation. However
installation by Windows GUIs from both WinNT/TSE and WinXP/HE under
various accounts work flawlessly for WinNT/TSE. Oh well, its been fun
chasing it up, but without intimate knowledge of what WinNT/TSE wants I
can't get much more insight.

cheers, Ken
