I made the samba startup scipt and named it smb,..and placed it in the
/etc/rc.d/init.d dir, and then next (exactly like it says)

chmod 777 smb
chkconfig --add smb
chkconfig --level 345 smb on

at this point i ran:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start

I get the following error..

/root]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start
Starting SMB services: execvp: No such file or directory
Starting NMB services: execvp: No such file or directory

Keep in mind that I installed samba in the /usr/local/samba207 dir not the
default by using
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/samba207

can someone explain  why i might be getting this error,..i did search in
pico and didn't find the string it mentioned...

pessimist is sure of it!
