Default Samba NOT STARTING

Hello all,

I have been having some "fun" with NFS and when that didn't work I resorted to my "ten minute install"-Samba. Guess what? It's been more like three hours and counting.. Anyhow, I just deinstall cleaned the port and re compiled it again. So, without any configuration Samba freezes on smbd. So Ctrl+C it and proceed to the logs

[2008/05/11 17:40:13, 0] smbd/server.c:main(944)
  smbd version 3.0.28a started.

More like, umm, not started. Okay, so I now move to configuration

workgroup = MSHOME
server string = Samba Server
hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127.
dns proxy = no

comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
Still doesn't start....Ctrl+C it->go to logs->same message Samba "Started"

I decide to restart it and see if it won't hang/produce different errors in the log. The result: Same message "it started"

I'm hitting the hay soon, going to let my brain work this one over as I rest for work tomorrow .

If you're going to BSDCan I'm volunteering so scope me out and maybe we can both work this out-I pay in BEvERages.
