I don't know if we still do impromptu Linux lunches, But I have a place,
and they serve great lunches. 
The place is at the Seattle Senior Center 
525 N 85th Seattle, Wa. <http://greenwoodseniorcenter.org>. The cost of
the lunch is only $3.00 please call ahead if your coming. But thats not
all, We have been trying to set up a central file server using Samba on
Fedora core 3. I am having a heck of a time figuring wins and winbind.
If we could get some advice on my configurations it would be most
appreciative. The Greenwood Senior Center is a designated public
Internet access point and is complete with a computer lab set up for the
public use (Thats us). The only problem is that they all run windows 95
- 2000's. 
If I don't get this server up they are thinking of installing WIN 2003.

So if you can Help out and can stay for a good lunch I'll be there at
about 9:30AM.
Below is some ideas they have that need to be addressed.
