Not sure why you want another review when the official (and quite
outstanding) How-to for Samba is on their web site.


Well, I'm sure there's nothing that I couldn't figure out all by myself from the myriad of conflicting, incomplete, error-prone sources online with a lot more work, trial-and-error, and existential pain than it takes to solicit help from the list. If I had all the time in the world.

That how-to may be excellent, but it still confuses someone who's starting from zero. I read it, and I have questions--it's not a be-all, end-all for all my problems. And believe me, I've tried this before and failed. It's just nice to hear from some people that it actually works for them. Otherwise how do I know whether I just made a mistake, or whether it really doesn't work the way I want it to? It's a lot of work setting something like this up, and I /don't/ have all the time in the world. Getting a step-by-step (Tarun's response, for example) was an unexpected bonus.

Honestly, this whole thread, at least for me, was a confirmation of the efficiency and value of the open-source support model. All of us are smarter than some of us!
