Bit of a weird one here. While I was setting up a RedHat 8.0 file
server, I set the server string to 'being set up' just in case anyone
came across it while browsing. I since changed it to 'file server' but
all the XP machines still show the old description in Explorer. In the
properties box for any shares etc., the correct name shows - it's just
in the 'summary' name in Explorer itself.
I have no idea why this is happening. Is it some kind of caching
problem with the master browser ? (NT3.51 PDC) I have restarted Samba
several times since the change.
