Linux to Win NT Domain?

I am having trouble getting permissions to view info and share printers from my domain which is NT4.0 based. When I choose my network from the desktop icon I can see all of the servers but when I try to access them it gives me a permission denied. Can someone help?

Not sure what you're trying to do here. Are you trying to look at a Linux server from an NT box or vice versa? If you want to see the linux files/printers from the NT box, you need samba running on it - see

If you see the Linux machine in the NT network places/machines on network, you are there. You need to set up a new user account in Samba. Easiest to use the same login and password that you use for the NT machine. Make sure the [homes] or [user] directives in smb.conf are readable and browsable = yes.
