What is the output of 'ps xa'? Is it there? Also, don't you need to run
the nameserver (nmbd), as well for Windows to find the computer? 


The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain

exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I
like a little rebellion now and then.
