I replaced a server running RH7.3 and samba 2.2.XX , with a server 
runnning centos4.2 and samba 3.0.20 .
We use several iPAQ handheld that connects to a share on the file 
server, and then open a file from a network share.
In the old server it worked o.k., but now, the same ipaq machines doesnt 
want to connect to the server.  they are able to connect to a windows XP 
machine, a winnt4 server and a win2003 server without a problem.

I have try to log in using the netbios name of the server and the ip 
address, but everything failed.
any ideas ?
I can send server logs and my smb.conf if requested.!

the error on the ipaq is:
"Cannot find the file '\\' (or one of its components).  Make sure the 
path and file name are correct and all required libraries are available"
of course, are the libraries are loaded.
The only change in the server is that now i am using utf8 as default 
language, and before we where using iso-8859-1 .

thanks again for your help!
