Accessing Windows Dfs root share Help!!!


I Have Red Hat Linux 9.0
I have samba server running in my Linux box
I made my Samba Server as member of my Windows domain Controller

I have windows 2000 server
I have Configured Dfs in my windows Machines

I have Created two Shares under the Dfs root

1 share is of windows machine and another share of Linux Machine

Now I login into of my Windows machine and browse the Dfs Server

by //Domain/Share

I am able to acees both the shares

I was able to connect my linux client
box to a windows 2000 fileserver share modifying the boxed smb.conf.
but after setting up a dfs win2k box and my
linux client is no longer able to access the shares, that is, I connect
to the dfs fileserver through username and password, I can see the
directories, but can't go deep into them, in a nutshell I can't reach
the *real* fileserver.

My question is:

What options should I modify/add to my smb.conf to access a win2k dfs

Can anyone guide to sort the problem
