If samba is configured correct, there is no problem connecting from
windoze w2k or xp to linux's samba share and from linux to windoze.
So what do you do and not, which share are you not able to connect to,
from windoze to linux?
I think mabye you don't have the global and share section in smb.conf
setup correctly....just a thought ...
