I agree with what you say, but try this.
Load Samba.unc. Try to edit smb.conf. It doesn't appear in either /etc/samba or ramdisk/etc/samba.
Trying to edit /opt/samba/etc/samba/smb.conf produces a ro file warning & the file can't be altered (surely this is where unionfs should kick in & make a copy to /ramdisk/etc/samba?).
Using emelfm as root, copy smb.conf from /opt/samba/etc/samba to /etc/samba. The copy goes with no error, but no file appears in /etc/samba. Looking in /ramdisk/etc/samba - the file is now there & can be edited. In a terminal cd to /etc/samba & try 'ls', no files are found. Still in /etc/samba try 'vi smb.conf - the file from /ramdisk/etc/samba is opened in vi !!
