If you have a machine.sid from a previous version of SAMBA for OpenVMS, 
it needs to be deleted for 2.0.6.  The file formats are different.

SMBD will recreate the file the next time it runs.

searching the VMS conference at or by searching
comp.os.vms on

On the SAMBA-TECHNICAL list, it was posted that O'Reilly was looking for 
reviewers for a new SAMBA book.
