easiest way to check samba status

to make sure you dont get to many errors in windows – make sure that messenger (net messenger) is enabled, “client for microsoft networks” in network properties is enabled and that you have the samba server configured with/through wins as needed.

also, make sure that your hosts file has the proper mapping to all the machines that are being configured through samba (hosts & lmhosts in x:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\ & /etc/hosts)
