[Samba] ipchains - major newbie trap

Just a quick word - I spent two days trying to get Samba to work. The whole
problem was a lack of knowledge about ipchains (firewall). It was part of
the RH7.1 install package, and the medium security setting stops all tcp and
udp traffic for a lot of ports, including those needed for NetBIOS (137-139)
It is pretty easy to fix, the IPCHAINS-HOWTO is a good and humorous read,
and by the end of it you will know what to do to open up the crucial ports.
I don't know where, and I don't know how, but somewhere in the diagnosis
check lists, this should be mentioned.
Thanks otherwise for a GREAT utility.
