I'm looking for methods of configuring Samba in 9.10. I know how to edit the 
configuration file - that's not the issue. I'm trying to help a couple of new 
Linux users learn how to configure their home networks without having to become 

Swat doesn't seem to be supported anymore. That would have been my first 
recommendation to them - although the setup for it can be a bit daunting. The 
Ubuntu website says that from Nautilus you can right click a directory and 
select "Sharing" The problem is that "Sharing" isn't one of the options 
available when you right click a directory.

I really need to point them at a gui tool for this. Any suggestions?

As always - all assistance appreciated.
