chkconfig worked fine but only after I had logged on as root, rather than as 
Super user from my normal logon.  In the second case, I got "command not 
found".  I had also found this happened with ifconfig.  This doesn't happen 
with Mandrake which I had been using previously.

When logged on as rootwhen logged on as root,  there was no "man service" 
file, but the service command  worked . Having used chkdsk, Samba started on 
reboot so I no longer had a problem.
