Hmm... I looked through the docs and saw that but wasn't and still am
not sure that is what I want.  It looks like it will probably work, but
what happens with the next version of Windows?  I presume it also shows
up as unknown, at least for a period of time?

To further complicate things, if the samba developers make more
"architectures" supported, which I hope they do, then all the settings
that people have in the "unknown" directory would then have to be
manually moved over to the new location (and possibly merged with some
of their most recent settings?).

Thanks again.
