Not my choice. The machine belongs to a company we provide support to,
and they had made some changes that required that they map a NT drive to
the Solaris machine.

I am assuming Samba is configured correctly. The configuration is not
radically different to the Samba installation on our office Solaris
machine, and that has been running without problems for sometime.

Will have to wait until tomorrow to get them to check. But from what I
understood from the person I was talking to today there is a single smbd
and nmbd process running and the smbd process just starts gobbling up
memory until everything falls in a heap.
