    Samba configuration help


    Hi all, i am trying to configure Samba as a PDC on FC4, as our NT machine crashed. I was trying to use SWAT to do that. But for some reasons swat would not start. I went online and did lot of research. Following are the things i did.

    1) I created a new file named SWAT under /etc/xinetd.d/ folder.
    2) Tried to add TCP port 901 under services folder but it was already there.

    at the end i read some where to restart the xinetd, but xinetd is a folder and i dont have any xinetd.conf file. So my questions are

    1) do i need to create a file name xinetd.conf. What do i need to add in that file to start Swat.
    2)And what folder or location i need to create that file.
    3) And how would i be able to start SWAT after that.

    I will appreciate any help and comments you can give me on this topic. Thanks in advance.
