Recent versions of samba have seen major changes which include
changes in defaults and additions to smb.conf - check the man pages
and docs for your current release.
My own problems seem related to browse master negotiation which is
new code and an old config file caused samba to stop sharing
altogether. Maybe the code is still flakey as my version is 2.0.3
which I thought was very recent off SuSE 6.1
Keep talking as I continue to experience odd, inconsistent and
bizarre behaviour from Win9x and samba peers.
Anyone care to explain browse and domain masters and their
negotiations? (maybe I just need to read BROWSING.txt in the docs
myself - ahem)
