I never did get samba clinet working with 9.0, now, 9.1 is have some of the same problems, but am a little closer. Been through all of the emails on the llist about samba, but could have missed something.

I setup the samba client with Yast which found the domain (win2k network at work) with no problem, I put in my win login name and win password. Everything seemed to be OK. When I go to Network Browse, it finds the windows network and the domain, but when I try to open one of the server folders that I know I have acces to, I get a dialog box for login, put in my win login and password, it comes up with nt login failure.

I have added the password with the smbpasswd -a, and I have added my linux login name versus win login name in the smbusers file. Still no luck after restarting.

I use smbclient -L on the server with -U login name, it asks for password, I put in the password, it comes back fine. If I change the login by 1 letter, I then of course get an nt login failure.

Worst thing is when I boot back into XP, I cannot login to the domain. I have to change to a workgroupo, reboot, change back to the domain, reboot, before I can login again. If I go back into suse, bhen back to XP again, have to do it all over again.

It appears to me that samba client is trying to login to the domain with my linux user name, even though I entered the win username when I logged in the first time. (it no loger asks for it)

Anyone have any suggestions furtther or knows where the yast samba client app puts the info when you first set it up?
