Actually, machine trust accounts *do* have the $ when listed in
smbpasswd.  NT seems to follow a policy of not showing items that
terminate in $ (viz, user accounts and shares).  The liberal use of $s
seems to have been inherited from VMS.

Also, note Christopher Friday's comments re starting the daemons.
