I am running RH6.1 on an x86 with 2.0.6 installed with an RPM.  I am
confused as to getting smb to start at bootup.  It works fine if I start it
manually (/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start).  I swear, the 5.2 installation had
smb start at bootup, but I can't find the difference between the two.  Is
the answer

1 - edit the /etc/inetd.conf file (swat needed a line uncommented)
2 - edit the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file to add /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start
3 - add symlinks to the /etc/rc.d/rcx.d directories to point to smb

I'm a bit my league with this one.  Unfortunately, this is as close as I
could get.  TIA
