i'm not sure -- i think it's what shows up on your connecting mac
as "server name" once you get past the 'ip address' dialog.

according to ethan's recommendation, you don't need to run
netatalk as a daemon -- it runs nicely as a tcp-induced
hallucination... which is apparently what

	# cat >> /etc/netatalk/afpd.conf
	macFileServer   -tcp  -noddp -nosetpassword -nouservol -noguest

facilitates. (correct me if i'm wrong, folks.)

following instructions. :)

"man update-rc.d" shows that it's the Debian tool to use when
changing /etc/rc*.d/* links to your /etc/init.d/* scripts.
now i still have the /etc/init.d/netatalk script if i want to use
it (/etc/init.d/netatalk start, for example) but there's not a
single link to it in any of the /etc/rc?.d/* directories, meaning
it won't be initiated (as a daemon) during boot or runlevel

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #1 from Will Trillich <will@serensoft.com>
Looking to use your Debian machine as a FIREWALL? No problem!
Try "apt-get install ipmasq"... After you've got your
/etc/network/interfaces file set up properly, ipmasq will
save you lots of work, setting up firewall and routing
tables automatically.
