[ic] stupid samba settings

    Right now I just have my winNT machine logging into my linux box as
root. (Yes I know, very stupid, but allowing our customers to edit their own
site isn't a priority yet)

Here's the share info from smb.conf:

   comment = cdrive
   browseable = yes
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   path = /
   valid users = rsmith, root

I'm sure you could just set the valid user as the store owner and the path
to their home directory and it would work ok.

    I'll look into Jext, thanks! It would be nice to have something like
Visual InterDev that understands the tag syntax of Interchange, though...
(syntax checking, one-click keyword insertion, etc.)
