Well I reinstalled and the files appear to be available now and I also
see the service.  However the service fails to start with the following
atalk failed. The error was: modprobe: Can't locate module appletalk
[could not load appletalk module]
modprobe: Can't locate module appletalk
[could not load appletalk module]
Shutting down AppleTalk services: 
  Stopping papd:[  OK  ]

localhost:netatalk@* [FAILED]
  Stopping atalk:[FAILED]
  Stopping afpd:[  OK  ]
modprobe: Can't locate module appletalk
[could not load appletalk module]
Starting AppleTalk services: 
  Starting atalkd:socket: Address family not supported by protocol

atalkd: can't get interfaces, exiting.
  Registering localhost:Workstation: [FAILED]
  Registering localhost:netatalk: [FAILED]
  Starting papd:[  OK  ]
  Starting afpd:[  OK  ]
Where should I look to be sure the module is available and the kernel
recognizes it?

Also does anyone have any sampe .conf files to get me started?  These
seem to be completely devoid of default settings.

Yes.  Should.  It's been a while though (ie, beginning of schoolyear)
I've done it.  Also, run ./configure --help  just to look at the options
have.  Some may be appealing, like disabling printer support if you
plan to use it.  (I've never gotten it to work anyway)
