Hi Marc, I am guilty of this as much as anyone, but there is nowhere 
else to put this info. It would probably be better to have a page that 
lays out what computer name, domain and ipaddress etc the wiki uses. It 
should also stress that the wiki is based around a self compiled system 
as this is the way that Samba is actually distributed and that the users 
paths will be different if they use distro or Sernet packages.

Something needs to be done, one confused user is one user too many.
