My problem is the reverse - my MS machines have no issues mounting the
Samba shares, nor mounting any other MS's machines shares. The Samba
machines have no issues mounting shares from MS machines. The problem I
have is a Samba machine mounting another Samba machine's shares. :-) My
Samba is integrating just fine with MS machines. It's only now, when I
want to use a 2nd Samba machine in the domain, that my problems have arisen.

I've been a Debian and Debian-derived distro guy for a long time now. I
wouldn't want to use a RPM-based distro, either. :-)
