i've got potato and did "apt-get install samba" and it installed,
no problem.

executing was the problem. it started making tcpd clone itself
(very slowly -- five in one day) while eating up 98% of all cpu

luckily "apt-get --purge remove samba-common" worked pretty well,

so my windows users still get to use ftp until i understand
(which is unlikely, as i don't speak the brogue that the samba
docs are written in).

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.
