Samba, Printing, and WINE

Okay, I have three questions. Yes, you guessed it, they are about Samba, printing, and WINE.

Before I begin, I should provide the information that I am running Slackware and I selected the Full Install of packages, so I believe things such as Samba and WINE should already be installed correctly.

First off, Samba. I was told by a friend to su to root and type "vi /etc/inetd.conf". I did so, and (obviously) it opened up inetd.conf to edit with the vi editor. After that, I was told to remove the comment indicator (#) from the line that started with "swat" in order to enable me to edit Samba using swat. I did this, and saved it (:wq), then entered "killall -HUP inetd" as root. I don't really know what the former does, but I was told to do it, so I obeyed. Now it was time for me to enter the Samba configuration using swat. This is where I ran into trouble. I exited root and returned to X as my user (adamantium) and opened up Firefox. I typed "" in the address bar, hit enter, and then got this message: "Access to the port number given has been disabled for security reasons." Because of this, I am not able to get into the Samba configuration. I thought maybe it was a problem with my router, so I logged into my router and forwarded the port which I was having trouble with (601) but I still got the same error.

Secondly is printing. According to many people I have talked to and many tutorials I have looked at on the internet, the KDE Add Printer Wizard is one of the easiest ways to set up a printer for my Linux machine. Because of this, I quickly opened up the wizard and attempted to be on my way, but I didn't get very far. On the very first step (Backend Selection), every one of the options was grayed out where I couldn't select any, and it would not let me go on to the next step until I select one. I am using a HP Deskjet 932c connected directly into the parallel port on my Linux machine. I don't remember what website it was, but it showed compatibility of different printers with Slackware and it told me that mine would work perfectly.

Lastly, is WINE. The only real reason I need WINE is to install FirstClass, a private mail conferencing piece of software. I first downloaded the latest version of FirstClass, 8.0. After downloading, I went into my terminal and typed "wine /home/adamantium/FC8031US.exe". For a moment, things were going along just fine, as the Install Shield Wizard opened and I saw the big First Class logo. Just before the Install Shield Wizard completed, however, I get a popup that says "Internal Failure: Error Number: 0x80040707". I retried a few more times hoping it was just a one time thing, but no such luck. After that, I downloaded an earlier version of FirstClass, version 6.0. I did the same thing, downloaded it, went into terminal and typed "wine /home/adamantium/FC6011UK.exe", and this time the Install Shield Wizard progress bar completed, but after that it just sits there while nothing is happening, and I've let it be for quite a long while to see if it would go anywhere. I looked at the WINE website to check for FirstClass compatibility, and it states that version 6.0, 7.0, 7.1, and 8.0 will all work. I have tried all of these except for 7.1.

Any help with any of my problems would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

As for the samba problem, the port you want to be using is 901, not 601.

Ah, okay, haha. He must have made a typo when telling me what I needed to do. Thanks a lot.

Anyone have help for my other questions?

Yes, InstallShield currently does not run "out of the box" on Wine. We're aware of the problem and working to fix it. For now install native DCOM:
