Hi,

Well 'samba' is a form of music.

If you really mean 'SAMBA';

Quote:
excerpt from SAMBA wiki;

Samba is a free software re-implementation of SMB/CIFS networking protocol,
If this is homework then you should note your source.

rehan,

don't get sensitive, they're joking.

why?

because your question would have been far completely answered right there inside your box. Read /usr/doc/samba-xxx/docs/htmldocs/'documentations'. Also, if you used google you will enjoy better answers there.

Lighten up!

It was light humor. Your use of 'samba' was incorrect and to indicate as such rather that say 'Your wrong, use the proper terms for SAMBA'. You should get use to being correct whenever you are addressing communication be it here on LQ or with your computer. If you used 'CP' vs 'cp' you would get an error message.

BTW, I get you meaning about association so you should get mine.
