Hi Kevin.

This mailing list, while hosted at samba.org, is actually the Canberra
Linux User Group list. You may actually be wanting the samba list over


That said, there may be someone here who can help. What distribution
of Linux are you using? There are a few different ways that the
different distributions handle the starting of services at boot time.
If we know your distro, we may be able to suggest a small config
change you can make to get samba going at startup.
