hi ya con

sounds like..

a. you need to fix the smb.conf file on the rhh-7.1 box
	- run smbparam(?) ( to test the config file )

	( its broken out-of-the-box

b. make sure that /home/con is listed in /etc/smb.conf
   if you are allowing windoze PCs to write into the
   home dir on the linux box

c.  smbclient is telling many usefull stuff...
	- not the ip# and the bcast masks

	- is this a gateway box to 192.168.* and 10.0.*.* ??

d. does have something it exports ???
	- shares on MS world or exports on linux side ??

e. can you manually mount the exports/shares ...

f. what is the fs type in /etc/fstab or in the automounter

c ya
