i'vr downloaded the samba-1.9.18p8 and installed it.   now without editing the smb.conf,i can see the network from win98 and map to my directories wihtout asking for any passwords.  Is samba working properly?

also when i run smbclient -L host, this is all it gives me:
etho xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and nothing come up.  i have to use ctrl-c to get the prompt back.

is this because i have not customized the smb.conf file?  Appreciate any help in this.

Samba doesn't allow encrypted passwords. In Windows NT 4.0 you can solve this
by putting a key under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Rdr\Parameters.
Value Name: EnablePlainTextPassword
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: 1
This doesn't work under 98 since there is no Services\Rdr.
Anybody know where to put this in 98 ?

        printing = bsd
        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        load printers = yes
        preserve case = true
        short preserve case = true

[homes]
        comment = User's home directories
        guest ok = no
        read only = no
        preserve case = yes
        case sensitive = no
        browsable = yes

you can make a similar entry into `98's registry which is explained in the howto`s but if you want me to mail you the reg code then drop me a line to rh4387@mail.eclipse.co.uk and i will attach it to a posting to you
