Hmm, let's coordinate first about Samba .. if there is *one* package 
that can be configured in multiple ways to do the same thing, that's 
surely samba  ;-)
To be honnest, just writing a 'how to create a share on samba' wiki page 
is not enough (my opinion) .. but explaining how to configure the 
backend (old smbpasswd, newer tdbsam, or ldap when acting as a pdc), how 
to integrate in existing Samba/Windows domain/AD , explaining Filesystem 
ACLs . etc .. is duplicating the official howto ..
Other thoughts on that ?
