I Entered the Username and Password info into the samba config.
and added the workgroup into smb.conf.

My eth0 is configured correctly because i can ping the server

try ping the pc.

in x-windows u can try smb://your.pc.ip/folder

or you can mount it manually
#mkdir /mnt/win2003
#mount // /mnt/win2003 -t smbfs -o username=myusername,password=mypassword

nice find. was just going to sujest checking the settings on the 2k3 box as knowing M$ they made it harder for non-M$ OSs to connect. that is extreemly typical of microcrap.

they did the same thing with NTFS and win2k. no supprise at all that you are having issues like this with win2k3. that is one more reason why i refuse to upgrade to 2k3 for my DC and am looking to replace win2k with linux someday in the next year or so.
