    Errr.....Now I'm totally confused...

    From the comments made earlier, I understood this bug affected
    behaviour both when mounting a Win9x share from Linux and when
    mounting a Linux Samba share from Win9x. However, your comment
    appears to imply that it only affects the former ???

    My query was relating specifically to the latter: How does one
    export a Samba share from Linux in such a way that it can be
    mounted simoultaneously by both Win95 and Win98 systems?

    Best wishes from Riley.
