Removing Samba from the system UNIX
I installed Samba a while back to play with it, but I've since moved my OS X box to a non-Windows environment. I want to uninstall Samba just for general "system purity," but I can't find any uninstall directions. Any clues?

Shouldn't be too hard

You can disable it by removing it from your hostconfig file just put no where it says yes after SAMBA. To delete the rest of it just remove the folder. I don't have the machine with samba installed on it in front of me so I can't remember off the top of my head where it went.

BTW I found samba to be incredibly easy to install and get going.

This may be a dumb question but I am new to all this Unix stuff (like many mac users). Where can I get samba? I know that I can use it to remotely log into my unix drive at school (at least that is what computing support tells me) but I need to get samba and install it first. Any tips on installing? Thanks!

uninstalling Samba

Samba lives in /usr/local/samba. In Terminal, su to root and type:

rm -fR /usr/local/samba
