      That didn't work for me. Perhaps I need to make sure that rc.local
      runs before Samba (smbd) loads?

      I have another issue: the mount command that I use screws up unicode
      in Samba. I assume that since when the system mounts the volumes
      automatically unicode works fine, there is a mount option that I am
      missing. I tried -o iocharset=iso8859-1 or iocharset=utf8 options,
      but then mount fails. When I try to use -o utf8, it mounts, but
      Windows still doesn't display unicode correctly.

      I assume the system issues the mount command internally somehow. Is
      there a way to find out how it's formatted?
