Well, the keyboard LED's were blinking, no disk activity, no network
activity... I couldn't login via network (ssh/telnet), nor directly from the
terminal. A hard reset was a must.

As of this writing I am running 2.4.17 now. I am going to update Samba (TNX
for the answers, btw) and will retest, if that fixed the problems.

Which kernel do you run? Do you use the SuSE Kernel coming with SuSE 7.3?
Which version of Samba do you use?
