Hi.  I'm not a sysadmin, but I'm the only person in this building who
knows anything about linux boxes.  I'm trying to install samba to
connect the box (rh7.3) to the windows network.  test 8 is where I run
into problems.  My username and passwd are the same for both.  My
firewall is down.  I have appended my .conf file.

I've been searching around through the archives and elsewhere, but with
no luck.  If anybody has any suggestions, I would really appreciate it.


*TEST 8:*
>net view \\sensorlabwrkst
