    Let me be more specific: with samba 2.2.1a on RH7.1 the command service
smb restart visually restarted both smb and nmb procs. Doing the same
command on samba 2.2.2 only visually restarts smb. When I service nmb
restart I get service unknown. Would this change your answer? Thanks for
your time.
