First message: 
First message: so I can't dired dirs. I hit the g but it continues to say the 
same thing.

Second message: More info:

to dired, copy etc
Second message: etc from those dirs.
Second message: 
Second message: If I run smbclient from a shell window command line, I can cd

think this
Second message: means that it is not the settings on the dir itself blocking 
tramp, but rather
Second message: something tramp detects as a problem when it isn't.  AFAICT, 
the read-only

and those I can't.
Second message: 
Second message: This sound reasonable?

Second message: Thanks

Second message: ps I still have to do a "g" on each dir I go to.

Here is the issue:

(file-exists-p "/smb:address@hidden:/Share")     ==> t
(file-exists-p "/smb:address@hidden:/Share/next_dir")     ==> nil

Is this something on the Linux side or something on the pc side?  Some bug in
emacs itself?

As stated above, I can do any dir, cd etc via a smbclient command-line
