First, I want to thank you for the great job you've done in improving the 
documentation. One of my biggest frustrations when I first set up Samba 
several years ago was the lack of documentation. Understandable at the 
time, it was practically a one-man show then, and I was grateful to have a 
tool that worked so well. Now I'm drowning in information, but love it.

Second, I've been able to read the docs in HTML format, which is really the 
most convenient for me, but you (and others) always provide links to the 
.pdf file, and I only get a blank page when I follow your links. I can't 
figure out what's going on. I have the Adobe Reader plug-in installed, but 
nothing shows up on the page. I've tried both Firefox and (shudder) IE with 
the same results. I'm able to read .pdf docs at other sites with no 
problem. One thing I haven't tried yet is to view the page source code to 
see if I con figure out what's wrong.

I don't mean to complain, mind you. I'd really rather not read the .pdf, 
but wanted to let you know.
