SWAT and /etc/smb.conf

Hi all,

First, here's my uname -mnrsp

Linux ollin.ucdavis.edu 2.2.12-20 i686 unknown

I'm adding my machine to my NT domain. I've successfully added it to the domain:

smbpasswd -j DOM -r PDC
1999/12/06 23:25:09 : change_trust_account_password: Changed password for
domain DOM.

Now, SWAT seems to have destroyed my /etc/smb.conf in a peculiar fashion.
Editing smb.conf directly, my contents are:

    comment = Temp file share
    browseable = yes
    public = yes
    guest only = no
    writable = no
    only user = no

SWAT, however, shows the same on Normal View, but in Full View displays global
parameters, etc, some of which I'd like to change so I can complete this
exercise. However,  there aren't any fields I can use to edit in SWAT... The
account I'm accessing SWAT with (not root) does have samba admin privs defined
in linuxconf.

I didn't see this mentioned in the FAQs, and I'm currently browsing the on-line
version of the O'Reilly book.  Hopefully, this is a really short answer
concerning something I overlooked.
