We simply need clear instructions as to either:
1. Go with the existing bind dlz which the majority of us have, or
2. Change to the new default internal dns server.

We also need to know
a. how to setup a forwarder
b. if there is a script that when if the samba binary goes down, it will 
start bind instead so at east we can still have Internet.

I have been asked to translate as portavoz (spokesman, perhaps not 
quite) the following:

'What a lost opportunity. A poor start for any RC. Introducing new and 
untested configurations with minimal documetación. Do that _before_ the RC.'

Well, there was other stuff said but perhaps my Spanish just wasn't up 
to it;)

Personally I would like to thank the Samba team on such a superb effort 
to bring m$ servers within the reach of us all.
