Exclamation NMB service fails on boot, needing to be restarted manually.

I have the Samba server & users configured, I can access between Linux/Windows shares and both SMB & NMB services are set to be enabled at boot. Everything working.

But when I restart the computer, I notice in services configuration that "This service is dead." for NMB. Therefore I have to enable it manually upon boot so that it works.

I'm using Fedora 10, fresh installed and updated. I've noticed through search that others have had this issue as well throughout other versions of Fedora, yet I have not found a conclusive solution to this.


samba, services
