RE: Samba installation



The smb password is different than the linux or Windows password.
To change the smb passwd run /etc/smbpasswd utility.

NT is different than 95/98 with the security.  95/98 do not allow you to be
multiple people on a network.  You can be only one person.  

For the errors to screen....redirect them when you start the smb daemon.
Quick rundown....
command > file	redirects standard out to a file (named file)
command 2> file	redirects standard error to a file
command 2>&1 file	redirects std. out and error to the same file

Single > overlays (each time invoked )double >> appends to the end

I wonder the user name sent to linux samba is different.
Unlike nt, windows98/95 do not give users the capabilitiy
to log on a system with different user name. By default, the
window's logon user name was given.
