I'm about to go on holiday, and I don't care a hoot, but I'm going to answer 
this, for the sake of others.

There is an oft-used acronym, YMMV.  You, and others, should remember that.  
When I say 'it didn't work', I mean exactly that.  It is not clever to assume 
that you know exactly what is happening on a setup of which you know 
absolutely nothing.  There may be software problems, hardware problems, 
conflicts due to samba trying to handle multiple boxes, and many other 

Personally, I'm past caring when people answer in this vein.  Newcomers may 
just go elsewhere.
