[Samba] Fedora Core 5 & CIFS - please help!

After trying a couple of Linux forums & no help I'm hoping that somebody
on the samba list knows how to solve this issue. I'm having a problem
with CIFS. This is a fresh installation of Fedora Core 5. I have 3 XP
machines that I mount by CIFS in my fstab. CIFS mounts the shares with
no problem. I can view and read files on the shares. The problem I have
is when I try to copy a file from any of the XP machines back to the
Linux box. The file will contain zero bytes. If I ftp into the box and
navigate to the mounts & try to ftp a file, the error is "426 Failure
writing network stream." This happens with any ftp client that I have
tried. There are no firewalls on Linux box or the XP machines. I have
uninstalled SAMBA & then reinstalled SAMBA but that did not help. Here
is a copy of the syntax that I'm using in my fstab.

//hal9000/movies  /mnt/Movies cifs
password=nfsnobody,username=nfsnobody  0  0

On the XP machine HAL9000, there is a local user names nfsnobody with a
password nfsnobody. Nfsnobody has full control on the share movies. I
also went to the directory security and add nfsnobody with full control.
Nobody seems to have an answer for this one as I'm clueless as well.
This has happened every since I went from FC4 to FC5 and was forced to
use CIFS over SMBFS. If anybody can provide some feed back on what the
problem might be I would be very grateful.


Thank you,

Kendall Cobb
