Hi Andrew,
I am not 100% certain of the answer but, if you are running 2.0.5a for example,
did you look in (it's where I have it) /usr/local/samba-2.0.5a/docs/textdocs?
You might want to look at some of the docs in there. Do you have swat up and
running? I have got a lot of info which worked for my small Samba/NT/FreeBSD
