RE: can't use load and dump to go from Win2000 -> WinXP ?

Blimey, I had no idea Samba even did text-mode transfers. I thought it was
binary all the way...

I'll ensure it's sent as binary (probably by zipping/unzipping) and try
again.

Just when I think Windows Networking can't spring any more surprises on
me....

Many thanks for the quick reply!
