Just wondered if anyone fiqured out how to change the server string.  (See
>From a previously posted message:
When viewing all mapped drives from WinXP, is there a way to change the
string that is shown to describe which server the share belongs too?

This is what is shown:
    groups on 'Samba Server (morpheus)' (G:)

What I would like to be shown:
    groups on 'Morpheus' (G:)

or if the drive is mapped to a sub directory
    finance on 'Morpheus\groups' (G:)

Changing the Server String option in the smb.conf does not change this text,
but only changes what is displayed when browsing the domain from network
