Why is this a bad idea? We've been running this setup
for a few years now and its been working fine until we
upgraded. The XP box only allows 10 user limit for
shares, so that's why we mounted it to the Ubuntu
server and shared it with Samba instead of having to
pay for Windows Server license.
The problem with simply moving the files over to the
Ubuntu server is that the files on the XP box are
stored on a RAID array that comes with a controller
card whose driver is really only designed to be run on
Windows, not Linux.
I'd have to setup mdadm on Ubuntu, which I've done
before and was not impressed. The Windows RAID system
we have is much more easier to maintain.
I don't want to get off topic here, I just want to
know why Samba is giving me trouble browsing these
