See 554 files on rh8.0/2.2.7a machine, 627 on the rh6.2/2.0.6-9 machine
(the latter being the true number).
Tried copying over the same smb.conf file (which I thought I'd done
before)...no change/luck. Also tried the same version of samba on a 7.3
as well as a 7.1 box (same smb.conf file too)...no luck there
either...oh, all had 2.4.x kernel, well except for the working machine
(if that matters).
