Mandrake 10 and Windows XP


I have a home network with 2 computers, one running mandrake 10.0 official and the other running windows xp. I have samba running on the mandrake box properly configured (I think) so that I can access shares and printers that I have on the windows xp box.

I have a windows xp share mounted under mnt/MUSIC and it works fine and here is the question:

Why, when I reboot the windows xp, samba goes crazy and even though the windows xp box reboots completely and is avaialble again the mounted drive is not accessible until I restart the mandrake box. Restarting samba does not fix the problem?

does any body has any idea why this happens and if it can be solved.

Specs:

Mandrake 10.0
Kernel 2.6.3-15
Samba 3.0.2a

Thanks

Just to start can you try an experiment:

In your Windows can you disable your webclient service to see if helps?

/Control Pannel/Administrative Tools/Services/WebClient
