mean with 'Linksys firmware'? As far as I know the NSLU2 runs Redboot
which boots Linux, so it must be some process and or the kernel that
catches all write accesses to SMB.CONF and subsequently updates all
other copies available on all connected file-systems.
I know that /etc/samba/smb.conf links
to /share/hdd/conf/share/smb.conf but that even a (non-linked) copy
on /share/hdd/data/public/Ernst/NSLU2 (harddisk on USB port) is
updated when I edit /etc/samba/smb.conf using vi is very, very
weird... and the update is immediate so it must be something within
the kernel and/or Samba... if someone can enlighten me on this;
