About half the book has been rewritten from scratch.  The other
half has been substantially updated a for the 3.0 releases.
I think we are trying for a November release.  The HTML version
of the book with still be included in Samba releases,
but I expect it will take a few months after the hard copy to
get the HTML files from production.

The chapter outline is as follows:

1.  Learning the Samba
2.  Installing Samba on a UNIX System
3.  Configuring Windows Clients
4.  The Samba Configuration File
5.  Users and Security
6.  Advanced Disk Shares
7.  Printing
8.  Name Resolution and Browsing
9.  Domain Controllers
10. Domain Member Servers
11. UNIX Clients
12. Troubleshooting Samba
