Lets now get started with Smbedit and the only bit of UNIX Setup that you need:-

	On the UNIX SAMBA server add the following share where 'write list = @staff'
	and the SAMBA administrators belong to the UNIX 'staff' group.
						('staff' could be any unix group)


Snip-------------- Add Share to smb.conf ---------------------------
[samba]
   comment = Samba Dir
   path = /usr/local/samba
   public = no
   writable = yes
   printable = no
   write list = @staff
Snip-End------------------------------------------------------------

	Now you should be able to find the smb.conf file by using
		'File', 'Open', (Look In:, 'Network Naighborhood', 'SAMBA server name\samba')
			 Or	(File name: '\\SAMBA server name\samb')
	then click on the lib directory followed by the smb.conf* file you wish to edit.

Recommendation:-
	The first time you use this editor, I would advise that you edit the smb.conf file that
	accompanies smbedit, just so you understand the querks and my preferences, or then always 
	copy to the local PC hard drive before editing.
		 (This will become an Option in a future release.)

	To use the TestParm button you must first add the [testparm] share to the config file
	 and the samba_testparm shell script to the samba bin directory then select the top level
	+ or - (expand/collapse smb.conf view) Box for the servers conf file you wish to view.
		
	TestParm share and unix script code below.

Snip-------------- Add Share to smb.conf ---------------------------
[testparm]
   comment = Run testparm
   path = /tmp
   preexec =  /usr/local/samba/bin/samba_testparm > /tmp/testparm
   postexec =  /bin/rm -f /tmp/testparm
   public = yes
   writable = no
   printable = no
   write list = @staff
Snip-End------------------------------------------------------------
