Yes and no.
I can tell you the Slackware way, but I have to make an educated guess about how
to manage it in Mandrake.
IIRC, Mandrake uses a customized configuration of the KDE desktop, so
- - log in as root
- - K -> System -> SysV-Init Editor
edit the startup scripts to enable the script that runs samba
A better hint would be to suggest that you ask in the alt.os.linux.mandrake
group, where they /do/ know how to do this :-)
