breezy LVM and samba questions

trying to set up multiple drives and logical volumes at installation 
doesn't work well.  so I just set up the boot drive, did the 
installation and start exploring alternatives.  Long story short EVMS 
failed miserably, raid was heavily confused, and LVM wasn't talking to 
anybody.  I zeroed out the first five or 10 MB on each drive in the raid 
set and raid set up correctly then LVM seemed to go okay after a couple 
of tries but I've been getting the "Incorrect metadata area header 
checksum"  message.  Documentation says this is bad but I can't figure 
out how to get rid of it.

suggestions would be welcome.


as usual, authentication is a problem.  Create the file share, can't 
login.  setup password with smbpasswd, no authentication.   didn't 
change anything with the breezy samba configuration.  It would be nice 
to have authentication problems handled when a shares created.

again, what's the magic incantation allowing one to login to a samba share?
