More on my Linux box...

I've been trying to figure out the intricacies of Samba. We have two machines: This dual boot box and a Win2k only box. I could see that other box from Linux, but not the other way around. After a good deal of searching, I found
this page on a FreeBSD site. The suggestions here did the trick as did another page's suggestion that the Win2k box be set (in local security policies: to allow sending unecrypted passwords to a 3rd party SMB server. (We're behind a firewall, so security is less of a concern.)

...Oh yeah. I also added the Win2k box to my /etc/hosts file.

So why blog this? Blogger is owned by Google now. The more places this info is, the easier it is to search it out.
