Hi Mark

Your thank you email the other day reminded me that
you don't have a net connection on some home machines,
so if that is the case in this instance, have a look


(substituting feisty with your Ubuntu version) and
download at least the samba package and samba-common
packages to install when you get to your not-connected
PC via USB key or whatever. It might be on your
installation CD however.

Probably worth doing this first and then grabbing any
packages it says are required on another run if

That way when you take the Morley's recommended steps,
it won't barf all over your nice clean shoes about not
being able to download the required packages.

If you have a net connection, then ignore me and
proceed following the Morley.
