Hello, Gary!

     Thank you very much for your reply!

     Sorry that I was not more clear in this manner.  That's pretty well

     Since I am fine with "doing things" (be it submit a printout or
transfer a file) from the Windows side, the Vista would be the client, and
the samba daemon is running on the Fedora Linux.

     The Solaris does not participate directly; its presence allows what
is processed on the Linux to be received on the D-Link router, since it is
a router.

     Ah... SWAT ... a "configuration wizard"... I will look into getting
that and seeing if that helps me!

     I didn't know about this.  I'll see whether I have it, or it looks as
though it is download-able...  I'll let you know!

     Thank you!
