I installed samba "sudo apt-get install samba". On one of my computers
it removed a bunch of left over junk and then installed samba ok. Prity
much the same results as before. I have used ubuntu from the 7.xx days.
On those older systems net working worked right out of the box. I
always had a samba entry in system-administrator which I could click to
configure samba. The newer the system the harder it got to network. I
do not have a entry for samba in system-administrator on any of my
computers. The other computers all showed samba lnstalled and up to
date when I ran "sudo apt-get install samba".
Still stumped. Ross
