I've just come home to find each time I try to
connect my win2k
machine to my linux box, it opens to display the contents of my home
dir on there and the windows box crashes. This has not happened before
today and to the best of my knowledge I've not changed the
configuration of anything on the system.
This happens even if I try to connect as a new user.
Win2k is a little odd, I think, over 95/98. I assume you aren't running samba as the
pdc. Is your user properly registered in both Linux and Samba with the correct home
directory permissions? Since the only "new" thing is the user, it presumably has
to be connected to that! Can "old" users log on OK?
