I've got the samba server configured to verify from /etc/smbpasswd and can use
smbclient to access my home directory from another Linux box. I've even double
checked and reset the smbpasswd file with the smbpasswd <user> command, so I
know the user-passwords are in sync. Windows still turns up its nose. Hmph!

Good to here it. I would hate to have to run an exchange server just to support
a calendar and task list. Thanks!
