now is 1.45_13). I am using WinXP with all MS updates and Firefox
1.0.3/4 on two client machines and I am frequently downloading to a LS
network share that I select manually as a target. No problems so far.
Trying out different OS is always a good idea, but I would guess it is
not the old Samba that is to blame.
