Trying to configure samba between two computers - one FC2 the other W2K Pro
From a root terminal:
smbclient //engagestaff/ -U Administrator password
Domain=[ENGAGESTAFF] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME
You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "Windows Network: engagestaff"
\\Localhost is not accessible
A duplicate name exists on the network.
comment = MyDocs
path = /home/user/My Documents
public = yes
browseable = yes
guest ok = yes
writeable = yes
Anyone see anything obvious?

You have the wrong syntax when connecting from the Samba box to the Win2k box. Should be this:
smbclient \\\\engagestaff -U Administrator password
You need to have double the amount of backslashes as you would use on a Windows machine. You should be using the ip of hostname of the linux box. Also, check the smb.conf file and make sure the servername variable is NOT set to localhost.
From the windows box you can't use 'localhost' because it will try and connect to itself.
