I know, but in the 2.2.4 RedHat packagaing, I wasn't even starting
it at all.

This sounds like a good idea.  Still one package but two init scripts.
I'll make the change today.  Not sure what happened to winbind.init.
Will check the CVS logs....

I'm not touching the Mandrake pacchagng files in out cvs.
I don't feel that I could confidently maintain all
