I think I'd need two smb.conf files. One for the s4 containing netlogon 
and sysvol and another for s3 to hold the shares. Can I do that on one box?

Hi Ludek
Yes, that's a good idea.

I think we're very close to a release of S4 with the integrated s3 
fileserver so am trying to decide to wait for that or go ahead with 
Franky or S3 and S4 on separate boxes. We use a lan of Win and Linux 
oxes and need to move away from the fileserver that comes with S4. I'm 
slowly fitting the pieces of all this together. Thanks for the 
suggestion. I have the Franky wiki open as I write. Difficult to decide. 
wait or go ahead!
