The answer to that depends very much on your environment and what you
are trying to do with Samba.
However, the rules of thumb are:
* If you don't know what an option does leave it on the default setting.
* Don't turn on anything unless you actually need that functionality.
All of those options switch on or off corresponding optional parts of
the Samba suite -- refer to the documentation supplied with the Samba
sources and on the http://www.samba.org/ website to find out what they
all do and to if you need them. Be prepared to iterate through
re-building the port a few times until you get the settings right --
use the command 'make configure' to change the settings, as you won't
automatically get that pop-up again once you've been through it once.
