No worries, I can deal :)

OK, I did that, which allowed me to run smbd manually (actually, after 
looking at the include line in the LD.so.conf, I added a new ldconfig 
conf file for samba to the /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ folder as that made more 
sense to this ldconfig newbie, but the result is the same).

It's been a while since I've done a compile. Didn't the make install do 
that for you in the past? As well as creating a first time 
/etc/samba/smb.conf? And setting up the script for getting the daemons 
in the services list as stopped items? And everything else that is 
supposed to get you started on a vanilla set up? Seems like the make 
install didn't finish for some reason.

If so, what might have stopped it from finishing?

Is it the fact that I'm using a version of Samba not compatible with 
Fedora 14 (I could back up to any version or other Linux flavor if that 
might help).

If this is expected behavior from the install (or there is no way to get 
it to finish), I will have a bunch of work to get it running and I'll 
always be waiting for it to fall apart cause there is a step in the 
install that I missed.

Any thoughts?
