I have 2 machines set up, one with Win95 the other FreeBSD running smb.
Allthought I can gain access on the Win95 box to the the shares defined in
smb.conf file on the FreeBSD box, I can only do so if 'valid users = root',
any other username will get access denied error messages.

Using the username map directive makes no difference to the problem.
I suspect the output of the command 'smbclient -L genesis' (the Win95 box)
might hold the key to the problem but if it does how do I fix it.

Server=[GENESIS] User=[] Workgroup=[WILLEM'S WEB] Domain=[WILLEM'S WEB]
                      ^^no username

	Sharename      Type      Comment
	---------      ----      -------
	H              Disk      SyQuest Drive
	IPC$           IPC       Remote Inter Process Communication

Any help would be greatly appreciated
