I am using Unix Open Server 5 and have a copy of Samba 1.9.18.p7 running on
my Unix server. I am trying to install Samba 2.2.6 and I think I have it
installed and configured but when I run "testparm" it looks at the old
configuration file for Samba 1.9.18p7 which is located in
/usr/local/samba/lib. The Samba 2.2.6 configuration file is located in
/usr/lib/samba/lib. How do I get it to look at the new configuration file?

In reading through the manual I noticed it talks about a command
"smbcontrol" that you can use a -s option with to set the location of the
configuration file but when I try to run "smbcontrol" it says "smbcontrol
not found" and when I search for it I can't find it either. Where should I
go from here?
