I'm using Bart's CD-ROM boot disk, based on the MODBOOT suite. The DOS machines talk to XP, and XP talks to the DOS machines. Just nothing is talking to Debian. This is the final sticking point. I'm using the latest stable release of Debian, and SAMBA is configured via the "smb.conf" file. Once I get past this, then everything will be good. The XP machine is the machine to get the log and report files and print them out. The DOS machines are the machines to be tested. They are named, via the config on the CD, as test001... test144. They're on thier own internal network/subnet.
So, my question is, can anyone suggest something that I may have overlooked? Debian has 2 NIC cards, and they're configured correctly. Do I have to make the server into a domain controller? We already have one, running Windows Advanced Server 2003.
