ok, i'm setting up samba between satan (debian 2.2) and navalle (suse
6.2/win95).  here's a list of accomplishments:

1. network is up.  can ping in both directions
2. samba runs from inetd when required.
3. samba is recognizing windows shares:

        # smbclient -L navalle
        added interface ip=192.168.0.1 bcast=192.168.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
        Password:
                          Sharename      Type      Comment
                          ---------      ----      -------
                          FLOPPY         Disk
                          C              Disk
                          ZIP            Disk
                          CDROM          Disk
                          IPC$           IPC       Remote Inter Process Communication

4. linux can access these shares:

        # smbclient \\\\navalle\\C
        added interface ip=192.168.0.1 bcast=192.168.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
        Password:
        smb: \> cd windows\desktop
        smb: \windows\desktop\> ls

a few questions.

1. i'm trying to share a linux printer with windows.  the SMB howto is
  pretty silent on what to do on the windows side.  i assume i double click

  control panel | printers | add new printers | networked printer
    | browse | satan

  i see satan on the list of networked computers, but when i try to double
  click it, it asks for a password.  i use the password for p (p exists on
  both satan and navalle and has the same password), but it complains about a
  bad password.
  
  in fact, when i double click "satan" on "network neighborhood", it asks for
  a password and no matter what i put in, the password is wrong.
  
  any ideas why this is happening?

2. smbclient is a kind of ftp interface, which is nice, but is it possible
   to actually _mount_ a windows share on satan? 

3. having to type "smbclient \\\\navalle\\C" is just plain silly.  there's
   GOT to be a more aesthetically pleasing way of doing this.  are there any
   higher level samba clients to replace smbclient?

thanks!
