RE: [edlug] Samba problem



David,

Specifically what are you lacking in XP Home? 

XP Pro is required if you wish to "join" a Windows domain (even if managed
by Samba), but XP Home should work ok for file and printer sharing via Samba
on an Linux box.

================

Thanks to all for advice. Unfortunately it looks like the problem 
is that I am running XP Home (not Pro), so running into the 
traditional 'gimme more money if you want it to work properly' M$ 
crap. XP apparently lacks certain networking components. 

d.
