    Hi Martin.

    Could you expand a little on "not editable". Do you mean that you do not have write permissions? You may need to be root to edit the file.

    Personally, i find that WebMin is pretty good as a GUI interface for editing the Samba Configuration File. http://www.webmin.com/ it also comes as an RPM, so installing it on Redhat should be a doddle.
