I had Windows 98SE connecting to Samba and it was working well.
I'm trying to set it up on a new system running Windows XP, and can't seem to connect. I can ping the server (lilac.dreamhost.com), but mapping the drive and/or running various dos commands (net view //lilac.dreamhost.com/username) provide only this:
"Windows cannot find the network path." (etc)
Has anyone gotten this to work? In 98, I believe I had to update the lmhosts file, but it didn't work in XP (unless I had lmhosts in the wrong location). Besides, I can ping it, so thats something, right?
