I'm still batteling samba. Going on 2 weeks now. I can see my shares on my samba server (also masquerading an ip address for M$ xp pro client) with command line but using konquerer reveals "empty" folders. I cant access shares with nor can i make any sort of samba connetion twith xp client. xp recieves its internet feed from the samba server so it appears the lan is functional. additionally this silly windows mini server/viewer "WINVNC" sees linux with ease. /etc/hosts is set up , netbios names and alias okay and the server is a dns as well.
