[Samba] Shares are not persistent

Hi Doug

I Wonder whether the smbd service is set to start at boot. Maybe setting 
up the share starts the services (smbd and nmbd) but they are not set to 
start on boot. I am not using fedora - but on Centos 5, these services 
do not start at boot by default.
In the graphical interface you might want to try something like:
System/administration/server settings/services and check that smb is 
checked in runlevel 5 (or whatever)

I actually use webmin to provide a more consistent graphical management 
tool - and would highly recommend it if you don't like command line stuff.
