Thanks Jerry,

that worked smoothly (didn't read the manpage) ! But smb.conf has to be 
640 !??
otherwise I get this (as non-root user):

Load smb config files from /usr/local/samba-2.2.7/lib/smb.conf
params.c:OpenConfFile() - Unable to open configuration file 
         Permission denied
Error loading services.

Should smb.conf really be 640 ?

best regards,
