I'm pretty sure the setting is correct, but I will check again. Am I
right in thinking that the host in the smb:// string MUST be the same
as the hostname in the recorded table? So for example, if the value in
the table is elm.edwards.home does the smb:// string have to be
elm.edwards.home rather than just elm?

I'm asking this because XBMC doesn't seem to be able to resolve the
full name when mapping to Samba drives, it can only resolve elm. (The
other PCs on my LAN can resolve both). I'm wondering if this is part
of my problem. Don't know how to fix it, though!
