I have a wierd issue with network mapping. I have an ubuntu server running samba with it's workgroup name the same as the windows machine. I have the IP address and name name of the server in the windows xp host file.

When I map the drive to the servers ip address - the mapping opens instantly.

when I map the drive using the servers name - the mapping takes a good 20-30 seconds to open.

what am I doing wrong?

thanks
sam
