[Samba] Tunneling over SSH

Thanks for the offer of sending the script off-list - that would be good 
because I'm still struggling to get the XP machines to connect.

It was strange because when I first carried out the steps in the 
instructions the shares showed up straight away - even mapped the share 
to a drive letter and connected Sage to the data file on the share.  
That was on Friday.  Then I went back on Monday and nothing would show 
the shares!!!

I'm determined to get to the root of this because it is such a useful 
feature for clients - effectively the files are still accessed over 
Samba.  This is probably preferable to sharing the data files out over 
ssh or FTP using buggy little programs such as SftpShare or Netdrive.

Thanks again,
