No, no, mon ami. Originally, /etc/samba was a link to /usr/srv/etc/samba,
and this is ok only if muLinux run from a read-write media.
But my muLinux El-Torito mount the /usr disk from an enourmous file
located in the CD-ROM. I need rw access to /etc/samba

Similar problems solved also for other addons. For example, now
XF86config is in /etc/X11, copied on the file from the ro version .in.

See below. I have absolutely need to keep this file in /etc, because
/etc is in the ramdisk (rw).

No,no: believe me. If also we remove ALL the scripts and all the DOC from
the muLinux base floppy, we will gain a ridiculus amount of disk space.

With a big work, I removed any /setup/cnf/*, adding a default() function
in any .fun: I gained only some hour of bug-fixing.
