    I'm uncertain as to whether this went through, my apologies if it is a 
duplicate message.
    I've got a samba 3.23c box that i'm trying to get Ghost working with for
image storage. I'm using a dos networking client, created by the ghost boot 
wizard for a rtl8139 nic. My problem is whenever i try to log
on to the machine i'm getting an authentication error. So, i tried to use
smbclient to access the share using the same username/password, which i know
is good because i use it to access shares from an xp box. This works fine, i 
can mount the share as my normal user using smbclient.
I checked my logs and for the time i try to connect using the ghost boot 
disk i'm seeing a session setup failed message with an 
nt_status_logon_failed message. I'm also seeing a possibly related message 
about not being able to pull in the browse lists on my server.
 I'm not using ldap or any database authentication,
i'm using security = user passwd backend of tdbsam.
    Any help appreciated.
