Re: [K12OSN] W2K and samba



Doug, I checked one of my Linux books & discovered that in Windows 2K 
& XP that NetBEUI protocol can cause conflicts if you are using TCP/IP for 
SMB/CIFS networking.  It says to uninstall NetBEUI from "Control 
Panel>Local Area Connection" & make sure that TCP/IP is installed & 
NetBIOS is enabled over it.  You may have already done this.  It's just a 
stab in the dark.
