I have samba-3.0.10-1.4E.6 bundled with CentOS 4.3 x86_64 and I can't
browse it with Win98. I have a very simple setup, Share type, with
access to everyone.
If I double-click on the server name from Win98, I have this message:
"\\server is not accessible.  This device does not exist on the
If I type the whole path to the share(ex: \\server\transfer), in
Win98, it works.
In WinXP there is no problem.
In the log of the Win98 client connection I have this:
