[Samba] Silence is golden

We now have our samba server up & running. But it's on an old
machine with an awfully loud harddrive. Pre-samba most of the time the box
was idle & the harddrive managed to go into standby - thus sparing us from
the din. When samba is running (even if no users are accessing shares) there
are accesses every 5 mins or so - keeping the drive spinning continuously.
I've redirected the log files to /dev/null & set log level = 0 & syslog
only = 0. But it is still happening. Apart from killing syslogd - has
anyone any ideas?
p.s. i'm not really bothered about logging from samba. i trust it!
