     Normally it is started by the rc.local file calling the
/usr/local/samba/bin/startsmb script.  "startsmb" was the straight default
that was generated when I compiled the samba package.  I did add the
"debug" option to see if it would give me more info.  It now reads:

/usr/local/samba/bin/smbd -D -d 3
/usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd -D

     I'll let it run like this for a while and see if there are any
problems.  Nothing appears to be going wrong.  Could be the typical
situation that the 'puters in this office like to drive me insane!
