I've tried the following versions of samba:

samba-2.2.4_1.tgz
samba-2.2.6.p2_1.tgz
samba-2.2.7a.tar.gz
samba-2.2.7a.tbz
samba-3.0a19.tgz
samba-3.0a20.tbz

All produce the same results.  I'm looking to see if there's just something I
changed on the way to installing my box that would cause this.  I'm not sure if
this the key to it or not:

[2002/12/29 19:30:01, 0] lib/util_sock.c:set_socket_options(165)
  Failed to set socket option SO_BROADCAST (Error Bad file descriptor)

Ideas?

Thanks!
