Purely subjective, but it seems to me that there is an abnormal number
of Fedora Core 3 people that are having Windows client stop/start
problems with Samba 3.

I'm running Samba 3.0.11 on RHAS3 at a client site, IBM eSeries x235
with 2GB RAM, RAID5, with 80+ Windows 2000 Prof workstations and the
server runs week in week out with no problems, no reboots, no daemon
restarts, everybody can just work, print, whatever.

I can't seem to gain much confidence in Fedora as production server OS.
