While I couldn't "see" the servers in Network Neighborhood, I still had
a drive
to each machine mapped, and could get to them--however, today, I can't--
an access error.  And I did put in my userid and password in Windows...

Don't know the version, will have to check that. I presume it's the
version that
came with Red Hat 6.0. I'll have to grab a copy of the smb.conf
I haven't done anything to it--I'm the web admin, but they haven't given
root permission. (I plan to attempt to load Linux on the server at my
tomorrow to play with it myself). My boss was running a diagnostic on it
I found on the web, but he hadn't figured out the problem yet.
