Hello all,
I have an odd thing happening. I recently switched a RH7.1 samba print
server with CUPS over to a Mandrake 8.1 samba print server with CUPS, both
running 2.2.1a. The way I had the Redhat system setup, it created a dir in
/home for each user that logged in to use the print server. It also started
up smbd for each user logged in. When I installed Mandrake, I copied the
smb.conf file to it, due to the hours I had in it tweaking for the network
etc. Now the print server does not do this. It does not add a user, and the
smbd that starts is owned by root, then changes to nobody. This is not
necessarily a problem, but me being the freak that I am would like to know
what caused this to happen, and how I might replicate it elsewhere. 
Thanks for the time!!
