When you go to set up LANMAN, make sure you have the TCP/IP
protocol installed. If I remember right, it is on an extra
floppy. It has been a while, but from what I remember, the
default installation did not include TCP/IP and you need
that to talk to Samba. Also, unless you need them for something
else, remove the other protocols to same a bit of memory.
