I thought so. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, I just don't know 
what. I've read over every option for smb.conf, Googled until my eyes 
hurt and toggled setting all over the place. I've also read the logs as 
best I can and I don't seem to see much there that helps, but since 
there's quite a bit in there that might as well be written in Swahili 
since I have no idea what it means, that doesn't mean much.

Is there some super-secret setting I'm missing?
