[Samba] 3.0.14 and MacOs X (tiger)

When I upgraded to Tiger just the other day, my network settings showed 
that the Windows service was shut off.  I think Tiger resets some of 
those things (all of those things?) to defaults.  Now, I think this only 
applies to shares the Mac is serving, but it may also apply to accessing 
Windows shares.

Go to System Preferences -> Sharing, and poke around in there.  I forget 
exactly where the setting is, and I'm not in front of my Mac at the 
moment, but find the Windows service in there, and turn it on (it might 
also be under Firewall -- the default is to deny the protocol, so that 
would also kill Mac access to Windows shares).
