I sent this twice, but since nobody answered, I guess its not a "quick
question" anymore. ;)

Version 2.2.5 on  2.4.18-6mdk

ive got the following in my smb.conf

        add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g machines -c
'Machine Account' -s /bin/false -M %u
        workgroup = ARCHANGEL
        netbios aliases = CYBERCENTER PARISHCENTER
        netbios name = PENGUIN
        server string = Samba Server %v
        security = SERVER
        guest account = nobody
        map to guest = bad user
        #security = user
        os level = 33
        domain master = No
        domain logons = No
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server =
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        printcap name = lpstat
        dns proxy = No
        wins support = Yes
        hosts allow = hosts allow =
        printing = cups
        print command = /usr/bin/lp -d%p -oraw %s; rm %s
        lpq command = /usr/bin/lpstat -o%p
        lprm command = /usr/bin/cancel %p-%j
        queuepause command = /usr/bin/disable %p
        queueresume command = /usr/bin/enable %p

my question is, ive got wins turned on, smbd and nmbd are running, but
there is no wins.dat in /usr/local/samba/var/locks
actually there is nothing in that directory.

why isnt it there? what am I missing?
