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?
