Hi Andrew,  

That is exactly what I don't want to have to do.

The work required initially plus the ongoing maintenance because of the 
turnover in staff here make that unworkable.

I have installed CentOS and now have a version of Samba that still supports 
security = share

I now have my fingers crossed that I can get it working because last time I 
used CentOS I couldn't get Samba to work properly either which is why I 
stayed with Fedora.
