Accessing a dos program via samba problem

Recommended Posts


I've installed samba and on the whole it works fine. I'm storing a dos program on my linux server and I am trying to access it via a windows XP machine. The program starts to load but fails and says that there is a problem accessing another file. It gives a dos error 2 which I think means that it cant open the file. Anyone knows why this is? Here is a copy of my smb.conf file;
