	Samba and the like are entirely foreign to me since I avoid
	anything Windows.  B-u-t, we have a new HP
	printer/copier/scanner/<whatever else> on the W2K box, and 
	I'd like to scan in photo and other stuff and scp them across
	the CAT5.  Soooooo.  


	PS:  a personal note---how's the summer-of-coding going?  I'm 
	     hoping that new young blood can make major improvments in
	     keeping FBSD easier to keep current.  I'm almost abandoning
	     Ubuntu for your Dell because things there under Gnome 
	     Just Work.  :-)

	     Please 'cuse the drift, folks....
