Ok, Ray and Anne Post me your Samba Version "rpm -q samba". Akemi has
helped me with my samba problems but I can't get nowhere when I put
"mode=user". Believe this or not I have never had this kind of problem
with samba. I want to be able to authenticate by the logged on client
machine, so it will automount the user share specified. I am really
thinking of Back Portting to a later version of samba in the version 3
series. I even followed the How To Samba and used there user mode config
file and got nowhere. Is something wrong with the cifs protocol? This is
really agervatting.
