I am new SUSE SLE 8 user. I installed SAMBA last week. I restart the system
and the X window cannot be restarted. I logged in as root and find all the
files are marked as read only. I checked the log files in /var/log and find
some log files from unknown machines. Is this a malicious attack? Thanks for
any clues. -peter-
