I'm just starting but as of now, none of the Linux boxes see the OS/2 domain
controller or any of the OS/2 peers other than the one I have eCS on - that one
has a patched version of the file and print client which is still problematic -
it is supposed to be compatible with SAMBA 3.0.2 but they goofed on a few of
the WPS class iinterfaces.  I guess you would say I'm stuck at the starting

I have the OS/2 server configured with TCPBEUI using B-Node with no defined
NETBIOS nameserver or other parameters beyond the defaults.  I haven't dealt
with TCPBEUI for several years, so likely I'm missing a simple setting
somewhere.  Between that and fighting the !@#$#$%^ firewall on the box I intend
for the domain controller (SUSE 10.2) is enough to make me glad this isn't a
full time job anymore.  Any unusual settings or tricks you may have used would
be appreciated.
