    88=== When I try to run Samba, nmbd.exe runs, but smbd.exe stops immediately. What's wrong here? ===
    99That usually means that the guest account has not been setup properly. Go to the command line and run usermod.cmd without any parameter. This will tell you what's wrong.[[BR]][[BR]]

    12 === The installer asks me for a password of the "root" account. I don't want a "root" account. Can I savely ignore that? ===

    1313No. Samba is a ported Unix software. It absolutely requires a "root" account. You ultimatively must create this account with an appropriate password. The same applies to the "guest" account. Without these 2 accounts Samba will not work properly.

    2727=== Does Samba really need this libc063x.dll, I have libc063.dll anyway? I want to get rid of one of these two files! This is the DLL hell!  ===
    2828Samba comes with an enhanced version of [ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0_6_3-csd3.wpi libc063.dll] named libc063x.dll. In order to run Samba successfully you must have this file, the standard [ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0_6_3-csd3.wpi libc063.dll] does not work for Samba. The two DLLs are not interchangeable and you cannot just rename one or the other. Please note that you also must not rename libc063x.dll to [ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0_6_3-csd3.wpi libc063.dll] in order to use the enhanced DLL with other applications. This will not work either.[[BR]][[BR]]
    29 ''Note: Samba version 3.0.30 and later come with libc064x.dll. So libc063x.dll is obsolete and can savely be removed from your system. You must '''NOT''' delete [ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0_6_3-csd3.wpi libc063.dll] however!

    4949=== Will Samba Server for eCS also run on Warp 4? ===
    50 Yes. There is nothing eCS specific in it. Make sure the prerequisites mentioned [http://svn.netlabs.org/samba/wiki/Cookbook here] are met. Warp 4 FP16 and OS/2 MCP2 have been tested to work. Pre-FP12 levels are unknown, but should work. 16-bit-TCP/IP (Version 4.0x) does not work.[[BR]][[BR]]
