I have two installations:
On the one I have a very funny phenomen: If I change same parameters and
restart smbd a several times then I get access with xp... and there is no
logic in it. With the w2k clients in the network we have no problems.
In the other network where we have xp and 98 there is no chance of accessing
the smbd server, but the problem starts before that, because I sometimes I
can not even see the members of the workgroup in the network, sometimes I
If I can see the members of the network, then I normally get the error
message that I do not have the right to access the network.
It is a vicious circle, where I do not see where the solution starts....

Hi Jim

Sorry for inserting me in the discussion, but I have the same problem here
and I tryed to set
    os level = 10
    wins support = no
and nothing changes...
I tryed to disable the wins support in win98 clients... do not work too..
I don't have any WinNT/XP/2k in my network, just win98 clients

I will thank you for any tips...

I'm using Samba 3.0.2a on Mandrake 9.2
