I was installing redhat Linux 9 some days back in my test machine. And later i tried to configure samba into that so that i could share my linux directories in windows machines. After the configurations are done i was able to see the linux machine in the Network Neighbourhood. when i click that linux machine there was an error message like this:
//Local host is not accessible. A duplicate name already exists on the network. Go to control panel and system and then change the name of the computer.
So i browsed through some groups and finally gave the test machine a name. Now that after giving the name "HPLinux" i again tried to connect to the machine. Now in the network neighbourhood i could see the linux machine named "HPLinux". when i click that i again get an error message stating like this:
"The network path was not found".
Now that i am trying to rectify this problem too. If you need i can send my smb.conf file for you to have a look.
