         samba-3.0.21b. After ports installation & following the handbook I was somewhat befuddl
 ed on how to start samba.  A google search instructed me that I had to add enable_samba = "YES"
  in /etc/rc.conf before I could start samba using the package provided start script (/usr/local
 /etc/rc.d/ _without_ restarting.  It was not clear to me that I had to add the enable
 line to /etc/rc.conf before starting samba without rebooting.  A diff with recommended updated
 text to solve this problem is below for file /usr/share/doc/handbook/network-samba.html
