Yes sir George, YUCK!!!!  However, this solution is a replacement for 
an IIS server that crashed.  Care to say yuck one more time? ;-)  For 
now, all services are internal through 1 nic.  If the web/ftp services 
will need external access, a 2nd nic would be installed and samba would 
be configured to listen only on the internal interface.  And, yes Mikel 
the box is behind a dedicated firewall.
