Dear all..
 I moved my samba server to a new linux box (faster, bigger, etc..),
and I moved from Mandrake 10.1 to 10.3 (mdk 2006).. I just copy my old
configuration file to the new linux box. The new linux's distribution
comes with samba 3.0.20... ( In my WinXP's clients I didn't change
anything). Of course, it doesn't work.. My clients can't connect to the
new samba server... I have been googling the problem, reading
documentation, FAQ's, etc, etc, etc... and nothing... I'm new in samba
world, And my first configuration works fine, but this one, have been

Does exist big differences from 3.0.11 to 3.0.20 ??
Does exist a configuration problem in my old smb.conf  file ?
