Ok, for now I left this parameter to "no" and removed the printer

I removed this line

k, I renamed them:
netbios name = RSB
server string = RSB Server
workgroup = RSBShared

This is part of my final configs I have planned. I made two user groups
that will replace the long list above

The error is a popup window on Win2kPro machines:
The network place cannot be added because the following error has
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon
Like I said, I'm new but it looks like the server is not broadcasting
itself to the network? The weird thing is some Win2k/XP/Macintosh
machines can connect no problem.
