I'm a linux newbie so be nice.

I have recently installed a Smoothwall Express 2 firewall with fixes7, and 
am trying to get a Samba server to run on this machine.

I compiled the lastest stable release of samba on this machine and it seemed 
to go fine. I then compiled xinetd and configured the xinetd.conf file for 

Using a putty SSH session I ran the the command xinetd -d to start xinetd 
and therefore SWAT. I think this is how it works. (BTW, how do I run xinetd 
in the background?)

The problem is that when I enter http://hostname:901 into my browser and try 
to login with my root username and password the login doesnt work. The login 
box just keeps popping back up.

If someone could help me out with this it would be great. Thanks.
