I can't seem to find anything in the docs that quite matches this, but 
if there is a doc, just point me to it. The situation is this. I have 
samba running on my home net. It's running as a standalone server in 
user mode so that users on computers at home can have home directories 
and and access to the printer. When I bring my laptop home from work, I 
occasionarlly need to print as well, but I can't even see the samba 
server in network neighbourhood or from the command line with net view.

I don't need to see the network neighbourhood. All I really need is 
access to the printers for my bring home laptop, but I'd just as soon 
keep the home dirs etc for the other computers on my home net.

The server is RH 9
The samba server is 3.0.1pre3
Printer service is CUPS 1.1.17-13.3

I'm attaching the smb.conf that I'm using now.
