Reopening due to incorrect wording in the book. 
 
+      <title>Configuration Information</title> 
+ 
+      <para>The installation commands installed a default configuration file 
+      which you can use as an example to set the values for your system and 
+      network. At a minimum, ensure you set the following value to an 
+      appropriate setting for your network in the 
+      <filename>/etc/samba/smb.conf</filename> configuration file:</para> 
+ 
+<screen><literal>workgroup = 
<replaceable>WORKGROUP</replaceable></literal></screen> 
 
Please say that this parameter is in the "[global]" section. 
 
+ 
+      <para>Also, for non-English locales, ensure the following values are 
+      set properly in the [global] section:</para> 
 
Wrong, this is needed for en_US too, because it is en_US.ISO-8859-1, not 
en_US.UTF-8. 
 
+<screen><literal>dos charset = <replaceable>cp850</replaceable> 
+unix charset = <replaceable>ISO-8859-1</replaceable></literal></screen> 
 
You rely solely on typographical conventions to mark the fact that the values 
have to be replaced. I suggest adding some words.

+    </sect3> 
+ 
+    <sect3> 
 
As for copying the default file to smb.conf, this goes against the upstream 
recommendation to keep the smb.conf file under 20 lines (as a rule of thumb 
that you understand what you are doing).
