RE: [seul-edu] File Space on a Samba Server

I did part of that already ... I mappedd the drive share, and viewed it with
details, but it gave me an incorrect file space size ... I will have to try
right click/properties the sharename tomorrow and see if it gives me correct
information ...

Mind you, the only reason I care is the students have quotas and I am trying
to make it easier for them to tell how much space they have .....

I guess I could also look into a logon script that tells them what kind of
space they have ....

A debugged program is one for which you have not yet found the conditions
that make it fail.
