First, go to RedHat's website and download the latest samba. Then, go to
/usr/doc and find the samba docs. Read them, paying special attention to
the section on encrypted passwords.

You don't need NetBEUI, either. Take that * thing off.


1. Can I used NT WINS srvr for linux clients ?

Hi everyone,

I'v been having problem figuring out how would I be able to provide
name services to my linux workstations (localy). I have an NT 4.0
PDC/DHCP/WINS server which is working fine for win 98/win 2000 clients.
But I'm not able to recognise any of my linux workstations. I was
thinking WINS server is the windows version of DNS, I'm I wrong ? is
there another peace that I need to deploy ?. I would really appreciate
any ideas, this thing is almost giving me the white hair.
