        Thanks for ur reply. My major constraint is the RAM.
Also i want to know weather samba has been ported to embedded targets with 
such constraints(RAM) and what is the minimun RAM requirement for samba 
If you can guide me towards any good samba 3.2 installation/internals or 
optimization tutorials will be of some help to me.

Right now we're pretty monolithic, sorry. What is more
constrained in your environment? Disk or RAM? We've put
quite a bit of effort into reducing the dynamic memory
requirements with 3.2, but our disk footprint is still way
larger than it strictly needs to be. We're working towards
using more shared libraries for common components, but this
is not fully done yet. We'd appreciate help here :-)
