Ok here we go.... I have Red Hat 5.1 on one box and Win98 on another,Samba service is running. When I go to network neighbor hood, I can see the Linux drive and the properties say Samba 1.9 or somthing like that, anyway, When I click on that drive it askes for a password, so I type in my root password, it comes back invalid. Then when I telnet into the linux box and type smbpasswd it says: load_client_codepage: filename /etc/codepages/codepage.850 does not exist. then old password: I enter the root passwd the new passwd and retype pass then it says faild to find entry for user root in file /usr/private/smbpasswd. I tried it as a user with the same effect but the final error after retype in the password varies from smbpasswd: machine 127.0.0.1 rejected the session setup. Error was : ERRSRV - ER
Rbadpw (Bad password - name/password pair in a Tree Connect or Session Setup are
invalid.) or smbpasswd: machine 127.0.0.1 rejected the password change: Error was : The speci
fied password is invalid. HELP!
