Now it seems I really don't know what I'm doing.  it appears I replied 
to a post with no reply included.  Talk about your bone headed things to 
do.  I only realized it today when I was wondering why no one replied to 
my reply, well my reply didn't include a reply, so why would anyone 
reply.  HuH?

Anyway.  you guys were both right, I didn't know what I was doing, and I 
didn't have a clear idea of what I was wanted to do.  In the meantime, I 
have samba up and running.  Still trying to figure out exactly what to 
do next.  Thanks for the responses.
