I got the strong impression that your system is missing some packages ... when I search for Samba (e.g. in Synaptic), I get a list of packages installed by default: samba, samba-common, smbclient, libsmbclient, smbfs (amongst others).
Yeah, I checked that. Samba is definitely installed. If I run a locate samba it comes up with all kinds of stuff. Also, package manager shows samba installed. It just seems to come broken in RC4 2k6. I'm sure there is an answer but I'm at a loss right now.
NEVERMIND. I screwed up. I didn't do what I did when I used samba in easter 2k6.. which is go to the kanotix menu and choose samba configuration. This creates the necessary user files and activates samba. For those that don't know. Now I don't get the error and it's all good. Now to see if I can get CUPS to serve my printer driver correctly to my windows network machines. I hope so since I couldn't with easter.
