Okeeedokeee, boys and girls... Samba is running!
Basically, reviewed a few things, made sure that users in Linux were same as
network users, reviewed configs, everything fine...still no joy. Then found
a book reference to the "C:\Windows\System32\hosts" files. hmmmmm... checked
it and created pointer to connect server name to ip address (go figure).
Funny, in all the references and web sites I read (tons of 'em) only one
mentioned this little fact.
I suspect that I can create this pointer on my router config and save the
trouble of making changes to each machine. I still have one issue, though. I
cannot see all of my shared XP folders from the linux box. LinNeighborhood
shows my primary shared folder, but not all of the sub-folders under it-only
one actually. It also shows my drives as $C $D, etc., but I don't seem to
be able to access them. I've checked XP settings til I'm blue and no go...?
Anyway... thanks for the assist... now, on to the Apache serve!
