Problems with smb.conf


Hello unto all!
I have spent a very frustrating weekend trying to configure my Mandrake 9.2. box to be able to see the windows network I am on. I have been using both webmin, nano, and swat to configure the smb.conf to no avail. Blech!The windows machines are seeing my box but cannot get into the directory I specified. And I cannot seem to get to any of them. Below is my samba.conf file for your perusal. Also here is the network setup. It is a little wonky but it works

There is no server
It is an ethernet network DHCP/TCP/IP
The router is assigning numbers
Router = 192.168.2.1
Addressing 192.168.2.2 to 99
Subnet 255.255.252.0

SMB.CONF is as follows
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from 0.0.0.0 (0.0.0.0)
# Date: 2004/05/10 18:39:55

# Global parameters

I am far from an expert BUT if your using xp/2000/nt I think you need to encrypt your passwords ..i had the same problem and had to make sure the user name and password on BOTH machines matched...
