I installed samba (latest binary) on my ultra10/sol2.8 box.
It runs good. The samba path was the user "data" home direcotry path that i 
created for user "data":

   comment = data area
   valid user = data
   writable = yes
   create mask=0777

I had to change the path=/home/data to path=/opt/otherdata due to
different reasons. I still can map it on my pc but i see
each new map creates each new smbd (ps -ef|grep smbd).
is this natural?. can i do this?.
