Dan,

Thanks for responding.

Is there a way that I can turn off the messages from inetd?  You get two
or three messages and then there is a 5 or 10 second pause.  I hardly
have time to do anything.  Editing a file is haphazard at best.  As the
messages keep coming and destroy the the display of the file.

How do I check to see if the Samba install was clean??

What do you mean by starting smbd and nmbd in standalone mode?

Thanks,
Max
