Once again I apologize to the forum.  I keep forgetting to do this.

The rc script at /usr/local/etc/rc.d/samba follows the FreeBSD rcng
scheme, if the rcvar 'samba_enable' is not set to 'yes', then the script
will not start or stop the samba process.

Run the script without any commands to see usage. To check the status of
rcvars that control the script's behavior, run the script with the
'rcvar' argument; e.g.

~/> /usr/local/etc/rc.d/samba rcvar
# samba
# nmbd
# smbd
# winbindd

Note that nothign is stopping you from running smbd and nmbd manually,
the rc control script simply automates the control of the daemon for you.

Ah, thank you.  Very enlightening.  I guess I'll have to read through
that section of the Handbook to make sure I understand how all that
works together.  I finally did get it working by starting the smbd
