[Sorry about the previous post - message was not quite complete]
    I am trying to set up a Samba server:
      Version:   2.2.3a
      OS         RedHat 7.2 with all updated and errata

      nmblookup  reports that the server is alive
      smbclient  allows me to login with either of the two established
                   user names as long as I use plain text.

      ps -ef | grep mbd returns an response with pid for nmbd but none for
smbd.  Servers are started in xinetd.d as per the documentation.

      Even though nmbd and smbd appear to be alive, I cannot see the share
named "LOCALSMB"  on any windows machine on the same subnet.  I can ping
the samba server okay so I know the network is connected.
