I've been trying to get Samba working on my MPE/iX 5.5 machines in the hope
of saving them from the budget axe.  HP has been worthless because they will
only talk to me if I'm on 6.0 where Samba is bundled.

I've got things configured as closely as I can tell by using the readme docs
and other suggestions from the download site.  The software runs, but I
don't see my host on the network.

Does anyone have any suggestions where I can look?  I'm getting messages in
the logs that indicate that the nmbd and smbd processes have the appropriate

I feel like I'm an inch away and it may as well be a mile...
