Hey, thanks for the tips, quite useful.
why cant a windows 2000 machine write to a linux box (which has a ntfs drive shared?)
I cant really change it (ntfs) that is. because my machine was set up as the 'server' when i set up this network.
one more question, im sure this ones quite easy...........
I found out that when I booted up this morning that the smbd process is started automatically but the nmbd process isn't. How can i have the command /usr/sbin/smbd -D run automatically at boot?
[EDIT] Nevermind on that last thing, I looked at the runlevel editor and it wasnt atomatically started...set it to yes and works fine now!!
