Does anyone on the list have any comments or suggestions about
configuring samba to run with MacOS X/Darwin? I recently inherited a G4
Powerbook and am having a blast playing with it. 

My story is that after loading the Apple developer tools it builds and
installs fine. I can start smbd, but nmbd fails to start and gives the
following errors that don't mean anything to me:

[2002/08/19 21:35:41, 0] nmbd/nmbd.c:main(794)
  Netbios nameserver version 2.2.5 started.

  create_subnets: No local interfaces !
[2002/08/19 21:35:41, 0] nmbd/nmbd.c:main(872)
  ERROR: Failed when creating subnet lists. Exiting.

Thanks in advance.
