Something else here that needs to be looked at. On all my Irix boxes that
I export to FBSD, Linux, or any other 32bit system I make sure I export
with the following:
/export/samba -rw,32bitclients wash-sgi wash-linux wash-freebsd
That 32bitclients bit is important. I still have an Irix 5.3 machine
here, and it needs it as well as the Freenixes.
