samba setup gaflooey
now that apple-communications are all lovely (thanks to ethan and
his quickie fix) i though samba would be a breeze.
after 24 hours, my uptime was OVER FIVE, and tcpd was consuming
98% of cpu time (according to 'top')..
9869 ? R 0:01 \_ tcpd /usr/sbin/nmbd -a
8493 ? R 539:49 \_ tcpd /usr/sbin/smbd
9205 ? R 119:45 \_ tcpd /usr/sbin/smbd
9276 ? R 106:22 \_ tcpd /usr/sbin/smbd
aside from not knowing where to go to tell windows 98 that
there's a mountable volume Out There on the network neighborhood,
how can i reinstall samba on my debian machine and tame it so it
leaves me some cpu cycles to work with?
i know there are documents -- like the library of congress
contains books. please point, i'll go.

Console GIBBERISH? Suddenly you're seeing Russian or Korean or
box-like text no your console or xterm (or rxvt) -- probably
after viewing a binary file, right? :) Enter "reset" at the
command line, or try embedding a control-O (letter oh) into
your command-line prompt string:
export PS1='^V^O\u@\h: \w$ '
