Read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf that ships with samba-3.0.0RC4 in the
~samba/docs directory. Better still, buy "The Official Samba-3 HOWTO and
Reference Guide" from Amazon, or your local bookstore for 730 pages puched
full of working examples and comprehensive documentation. The "Fast Start:
Cure for Impatience" chapter has fully worked examples that will perfectly
answer your questions.
