Samba and pppd problems

Hi All,

    I am trying to get Samba to totally ignore my ppp0 (pppd)

    So I stuck the following into my smb.conf:

                  ; set up interfaces
                        interfaces = eth0
                        bind interfaces only = true

   But now "/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start" freezes until pppd (on
logs into the Internet.  And, smb crashes at boot because pppd
start (in /etc/inittab) until after smb starts.

   What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks,
