      Getting Debian running on LSII is very easy. Just run a script, and
      everything's done.

      I used to run Openlink, but turned to run Debian just a week ago.
      When I was on the openlink, I get lighttpd and pmwiki, and document
      everything there.

      However, I lose nearly all my data when I play with debian. So, the
      article is lost I am afraid.

      Basically, I get samba running by following steps:

      1. Openlink
      2. Development tools from the linkstationwiki
      3. compile samba at /usr/local, pid in /var/run
      4. backup the old smb.conf
      5. symbolic link to /usr/local/etc/smb.conf in the old directory
      6. write a script using awd to change smb.conf on every boot
