Hmm.. I guess I better call the last two places I set up Samba 
servers for, and tell them to stop using them because (according to 
you) they don't work.

You did however point out something I was overlooking, and need to 
reinvestigate. (a bit of a forehead slap on this one).

Beyond that: You are a poster child for the anti-open source software 
group. It's sad that a request for help is met with attitudes such as 
yours, and become confrontational.

Thanks for the help.
