hmm, i tried the download, and the "SMB.CF" looks _very_ similar
to smb.conf however from what i can see, this thing
is heavly hacked, the unpacked archive are 14 files (and just
about 320k), binary only.

i think they are in violation of the GPL as they want 
15000 UK Pound for the sources... 

why would they call it "samba" if it weren't derived
from the stuff you can get at :-)

BTW: what is iRMX ? from what i saw i think this might be 
some kind of embedded system.
