Yes, it was this basic.  I had made a hard link from /usr/local/bin when 
I thought I had made a soft one.  Really, Luke, I swear I'm not stupid.  
I'm sorry to take up your time like that.

Supposedly it allows two Samba WINS servers on different subnets to sync 
with each other's browse lists.  I don't know if it works. I couldn't get 
it to do what I thought it was supposed to.

These changes made all the difference once I'd gotten everything else to 
work.  I've suggested to jerry to include them in his faq since I didn't 
see it in any of the documentation.

Thanks again,
