    samba 2.2 shares "taking over" windows shares


    I've got 3 pc's in a small network. One runs OpenBSD 3.3 with samba 2.2, one runs windows 98 SE, and the other runs windows xp. The samba machine has some shares defined in smb.conf. I can get to those shares from windows.

    The problem is that I can't get to any of the shares on the windows machines. When I am browsing the SMB workgroup, the windows pc's show up with the right names, but with the shares defined in smb.conf on the samba machine.

    The windows pc's have some shared files and one has a shared printer. When I am on one of the windows pc's, and I browse the workgroup, I can see the correct shares for the computer that I am at, but I see the incorrect shares (the samba shares) for the other windows pc.

    What would cause this? I confess I have never taken the time to truly understand Windows Networking. Please excuse my newbness.

    My smb.conf is attached as "smb.conf.txt"below. It is basically the default configuration with share level security and some shares defined at the end.

    Thanks for reading!
