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.
