Hi everyone,
	There's been a few people lately asking about this problem. I've already 
offered the solution twice, and I believe Andrew has mentioned it too, but 
we obviously keep getting new people on the list ;) So here's how to fix 
it, once again:

Add the following line to the [global] section of your smb.conf:

ssl CA certDir = /usr/share/ssl/certs

That's it! The default is /usr/local/ssl/certs , which doesn't exist. I'm 
re-posting this message for 2 reasons: 1) I like to help people with 
problems I've nutted out; 2) I don't often get to help others out because 
I'm not much of a seasoned Linux user. :)
