Yeah, Debian and Ubuntu have "apt-cache search foo", but I was hoping
for more of a web interface so I could work my way through Fedora's RPM

I should add to something to that. I never needed Samba until I moved
into my inlaw's house. Now that I'm back out of there, I have no need
for it again. :)

Well, like I said, since I switched to Ubuntu Dapper (then Edgy and now
Feisty) from Debian testing, Samba has been working without any effort
from myself. Kinda nice considering that back a few years ago, I worked
on getting Samba to work for a few days than gave up. There was probably
something *really* simple I was overlooking... :)
