I had told you in my last message that you should not use backslashes
(\); use slashes (/) instead.  Besides, amanda will never perform a
level-0 backup in degraded mode, that is, if it does not have a tape
to write to.

There are also two patches in the patches page related with SAMBA
support.  I hope you have applied them, but they do not have anything
to do with the problems you've got so far.
