    Hi and thanks.  

    The article you sent me will work for connecting to Windows shares not using NTLMV2 authentication.  My Windows computer use NTLMV2 authentication.  I still can't connect from my Ubuntu 8.4 to Vista shares or other Windows shares due to the fact that they all use NTLMv2 Authentication.  Do you know any Ubuntu or Linux tech support that I could call or pay so that I can get this issue answered.  I've even posted this question to the Ubuntu Forums.  no one seems to have the answer.

    Thanks again!
