Hey guys, I think I found my problem. Now I just need to figure out how to
I checked the NT 4.0 box, and for network identification, it has the DOMAIN
set to COURTESY.
In smb.conf, the workgroup = COURTESY.
Went through the book, and it stated that if it is set like that, you will

Ok...now I need to figure out how to fix this.
