I am trying to map a samba share from a Windows 2003 server. I am mapping
the share as:

The error message I receive is: The network path could not be found.

I am running using samba-3.0.24-4.fc5

When I run testparm on my smb.conf file, everything looks fine.
If I run smbclient //server-ip-address/proventia -Uproventia I am able to
connect to and view the share contents.

My smb.conf file looks like the following:

netbios name = fr-fs
workgroup = awr
server string = samba server
security = user
max log size = 50
encrypt passwords = yes
passdb backend = tdbsam
local master = yes
os level = 56
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
domain logins = yes
wins support = yes

   comment = Network Logon Service
   path = /home/netlogon
   guest ok = yes
   writable = no
   share modes = no

        path = /opt/pvweb
        guest ok = yes
        comment = Proventia log files
        read only = No

Any ideas?
