Oh.  I should mention the disclaimer.  I also use Multinet.  But if  
you follow the instructions in 2.2.8 for using MN and force the HP  
installation to completion (it advises you to quit the installation,  
but you decline) you set Samba to use MN using the 2.2.8 and the HP  
Samba information as a guide.  And it works, which you'd expect,  
except for issues that don't seem to be in any way related to the  
stack you are using.

Since I have the old and the new Samba installs in different places I  
can start either one after a boot.
