The answer to that depends very much on your environment and what you are trying to do with Samba. However, the rules of thumb are: * If you don't know what an option does leave it on the default setting. * Don't turn on anything unless you actually need that functionality. All of those options switch on or off corresponding optional parts of the Samba suite -- refer to the documentation supplied with the Samba sources and on the http://www.samba.org/ website to find out what they all do and to if you need them. Be prepared to iterate through re-building the port a few times until you get the settings right -- use the command 'make configure' to change the settings, as you won't automatically get that pop-up again once you've been through it once.
