thanks for responding. I have just installed SUSE 8.0 then trying to configure Samba 2.2.3a but
# smbclient -U% -L localhost
produced the error: error connecting to 127.0.0.1:139 (Connection refused)
I tried http://localhost:901
cannot connect to 901
the when i tried: to verify if rpm is installed i got:
initscripts not installed.
How do i resolve this pls.
