SAMBA

by marshallkeithusa In reply to SAMBA

If you are running redhat or susie I suggest
you download the RPM and install that. If
you have never compiled software before that
is the easy way to go. If you use the *.gz
you will have to extract and then compile the
software. Once you extract the files there
will be a readme file that will tell you how
to compile the software. That is just the
beginning you also have to setup your
smb.conf file before you can run the server.
I highly recomend that you purchase a book
on samba like Samba unleashed. At least go to:
http://us4.samba.org/samba/docs/
and print out smb.conf and also print out the
howto's

Hope this helps

Download the latest from www.samba.org, it is
2.2.1a. Unpack it to a temp directory and run
./configure in the source directory, then
make and then make install. Start the smbd
and nmbd as daemons in inetd.conf or
xinetd.conf (depending on the age of your
distribution, newer dists use xinetd). Look
in the Techrepublic articles for good info on
how to configure the smb.conf. Have fun.

if you have that error message it means samba was not installed.what you need to do is to download the rpm from the website or using a CDROM run the command rpm -ivh <the samba file>..This would install samba.After that you need to configure samba by using /etc/smb.conf or the SWAT tool so that users can access the shared folders on linux!!Best of luck
