no...... how can i do that?? i just did a basic compiling of samba, and i was wondering why the smba directory it in /usr/local/samba cuz every guide that i read so far said that the folder and the config file should be in the /etc/samba .......

but in my case i believe samba is running gr8 from that location i mean /usr/local/samba.... but i keep wondering why ???'

Well if your login is denied to the Win2K box, how about making absolutely sure that you have a valid login/password for that box by using the Win2K user manager. Make sure to post exactly what you're running Samba on, what version, and how you installed it in the future.
