ok ive seen several topics on this but none have helped :oops:

ive clean installed knoppix 3.6 , everything is ok but try to start samba by ANY method and it does not fire it up correctly ie i cant see the knoppix install from any other pc/laptop connected, but works ok on live cd.
in user mode it asks me for a password OK
but does not has if i want to mount the drives.

ive checked the samba.conf the only difference i can see from the live ver to hd version is:-
the live version automatically creates script at the bottom of the samba.conf mounting the cdrom and drives , while the HD version does not

can anyone help :roll:

On hdd installation, don't use "start samba server" from knoppix menu. Start it manually or auto on every boot.
Do this in root konsole:
To start manually : /etc/init.d/samba
To start automatically on every boot : rc.d-update samba defaults
Create samba user and their password.
Edit your /etc/samba.conf
