     5'''Q: I want to try Samba Server for eCS(OS/2), but I have installed NetBIOS over TCP/IP and I do not want to screw this machine. Anything I can do for a quick and painless test?'''[[BR]]
     6'''A:''' As also noted otherwise you MUST remove NetBIOS over TCP/IP before trying the Samba Server. Nevertheless you just have to backup 3 files in order to get back to you previous status.[[BR]]
     7So, for a quick try of the Samba Server, do the following:
     8
     9 1. Create backups of \ibmcom\protocol.ini, \ibmlan\ibmlan.ini and config.sys.
     10 2. Run MPTS to remove NetBIOS over TCP/IP protocol. ''Note: Setting UNIXROOT now is a good idea!
     11 3. ''Reboot.
     12 4. Try Samba Server for eCS(OS/2)
     13
     14In case you want to go back:
     15
     16 1. Uninstall Samba Server for eCS(OS/2)
     17 2. Copy the backups of \ibmcom\protocol.ini, \ibmlan\ibmlan.ini and config.sys over the current versions.
     18 3. Reboot. You are back where you were before trying Samba.
