The RPM philosophy is that installation and configuration should be separate activities.  There
good policy
yes but the rpm already ships with a config file

rpm -qf /etc/samba/smb.conf
samba-common-3.2.4-0.22.fc10.i386

Yes, and the configuration file is owned by *one* package. When multiple packages try to own the same file, very bad things happen, as evidenced by this incident:

http://it.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/07/18/1210257

so I ask for that file in that package to be modified to have a line like this

usershare path = /var/lib/samba/usershare

BTW: I forget that we have system-config-samba

we can put a checkbox [ ]  enable nautilus-share


That's exactly how we should do it.
