 I configured the samba server as described in the hint however my
Windows2000 Server does not see the samba server. 
I have a few questions on the smb.conf thou

what doe the following line do

server string = %h server(Samba %v)

and what goes in these lines
 workgroup = (domain name or Windows Internet Name)
 netbios name = (windows Internet Name, or Host name of linux box.)

Thanks in advance
