[Samba] 2 Qs, Win ME failure and SWAT issue.

Followed a suggestion to use the following at the term window:
ps -fu root | grep smb (Thanks Joseph Loo)
root 1493 1 0 02:30 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/vmware-smbd -D
So, I guess the samba version that is running is the one I installed
with VMware. This would explain why SWAT keeps telling me smb isn't
really running. SWAT is correct in that the version it wants to see,
isn't running. The VMware installation is.
This explains also why I can update the samba.conf file as much as I
want and not notice any changes and why I can not connect from anywhere
I will now work on either getting the VMware installed version to
"lighten up" and let me in from outside, or, having VMware use the newer
version I installed. Back to editing files by hand, if I can find them.
I guess it is possible to have a VMware version and an RPM version on
the same box as they seem to not recognize each other. Mostly I suppose
due to VMware placing the renamed files in unusual places.
I would like to see this written up someplace handy for future SAMBA and
VMware users as an issue with VMware vs SAMBA installations.
Thanks folks, I am open to suggestions...
