Posting again, due to no response. If you can't share the working config
files, then please let me know the essentials to getting this going....
(there are a lot of options in the conf file, that I don't know if I
should ignore or make sure to set). Thanks, Joel Joel Thompson wrote:

You can also find example .reg files in the samba docs directory.

This may be a better example:
It's the standard smb.conf shipped with Mandrake, just with the
domain-related options uncommented. Has some useful things. Works best
on Mandrake of course (due to correct directories in place, ACLs
available out-the-box etc).
This may also be useful:
All that you should need to do with the above example file (after saving
it to the appropriate place) is:
1)Change the workgroup name
2)Add an smbpasswd for root:
# smbpasswd -a
Then follow the instructions on the web page.
