Yes, smb is indeed running.  My version of Linux is Red Hat 6.1, with the
stock kernel (I haven't upgraded it yet, so it's 2.2.12-20, I believe)

loaded the services ok, but gave me a "dump" of a bunce of stuff I mostly
don't have in my smb.conf file?  Is that correct??

smbd -D
grep smb

> $ ps aux | grep nmb ---------- the same thing as above

nmbd -D

hmmm, still can't see TAMIRA in the Network Neighbourhood, but I can still
map a network drive to the share on TAMIRA (TAMIRA = linux Samaba server)
