[sigh] I've tried so many different combinations, but currently there's no gateway - should this be the IP or name of the NT server - i.e. "ntserver"?
Do I set a "static route" as:
gw ntserver 255.255.255.0 ntserver ??
As you can see, I'm a little confused...
I don't know if setting it to ntserver's name would work or not. I've only set it to IPs. Try setting it's gateway to the ntserver's IP. You shouldn't need a route if they are on the same network and you set the ntserver's ip as the gateway (you wil need probably need to restart the network interface(s) on the linuxserver after doing this).
Some other things that come to mind (to try):
Is your ntserver serving up ip information via dhcp?
(If so, then set-up an dhcp client or for the linuxserver machine to get it's ip information from the dhcp server.)
Try without connecting to ntserver with Samba, then try again after you have connected to an share or some other network item via Samba.
On the ntserver, is the linuxserver a machine that show's up in the Domain's list of machines?
