IPC$ is a special share that lists all other shares, 'netlogon' is a 
share normally used for scripts run when a user logs in, Sysvol is the 
share that stores GPO's.


Question about the homes section in the smb.conf file.  Now that I have
        template shell = /bin/bash        template homedir = /home/%U
in the global section of the smb.conf file do I still need the 
[homes]    read only = No

section any more?
