[Samba] Setting up SWAT

 Yea, when I run that command "chkconfig swat on", it sets the disable to
"no".  Red Hat controls the xinet through this chkconfig application, so it
does all the HUP'ing for me.

So after setting 'chkconfig swat on', I open the swat file and verify that
it is set to disable = no.  But I still can't connect on

You need to enable SWAT.  You've currently got disbale set to "yes".
it to "no"  Then you need to HUP the xinet daemon to get it to reread
