Just to elaborate for Bruce ... Samba is an OSS alternative for
MicroSoft's Domain Controller that runs under Unix ... I've used it for >7
years now in various ways, but the big thing has always been as a means to
all Windows users the ability to 'mount' their user directories fro a Unix
box to their local Windows ... allows for both file and printer sharing,
as well as can be configured to act as a Primary Domain Controller in lieu
of soemthing like NT or Windows2000 ...
