go to control-center->search settings, and, in the Indexing tab, add the
directories you want beagle to index.

Okay, I tried that as root because I want the whole Samba server /data
directory to be indexed, not just those files my user account has
access to.

It error-ed out and said that root does not get to do that. Instead I
have to use "beagle-build-index" to index my /data directory.

Not a problem, but I have a couple questions:

1) Do I have to run beagle-build-index only once, or should I invoke
it every night as part of my backup script?

2) My /data directory has 60GB of real data in it. How big should I
expect the index to be?

3) Assuming I get the index built, will I be able to give the Windows
users that access the Samba server access to the beagle index? ie.
via a web front-end or something? You can see this is my first
adventure into using beagle.
