[Q] Can I get help configuring for Samba?

I'm having a hard time wrapping myself around networking, Samba and my
laptop.  I know it shouldn't be this hard, but my situation isn't really
handled in the docs, as far as I can tell.

I have a potato installation on a ThinkPad.  The PCMCIA card works OK in
Win98 and is recognized within Linux (beep-beep in boot, and cardinfo
finds it).  

I usually use the computer stand alone, infrequently connect to the
internet through ppp0 and now want to connect to the WinNT network at my
employer.  That network uses DHCP to assign addresses.

I guess I should configure my network (already set to only loopback  I'm trying to get swat started, but starting it from the
command line just waits.

Before configuring smb.conf I'm trying to understand most parts of it,
and I think I'm doing more work than I'm supposed to have to.  But I
haven't found any "easy configurator" like pppconfig is.

Can I get a nudge with someone elses setup?

Thanks a lot,
