HOW TO INSTALL AND TEST SAMBA

1. Obtaining and Installing Samba
Binary packages of Samba are included in almost any Linux or UNIX distribution.
There are also some packages available at the Samba home page.
Refer to the manual of your operating system for details on installing packages
for your specific operating system.

1. Configuring Samba (smb.conf)
Samba's configuration is stored in the smb.conf file, which usually resides
in /etc/samba/smb.conf or /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf. You can
either edit this file yourself or do it using one of the many graphical tools
that are available, such as the Web-based interface SWAT, that is included
with Samba.
