Thanks for the lead. I also now found a press release about a Linuxcare
course from fall of 1999: "Extreme Samba--written by Linuxcare guru Andrew
Tridgell, the creator of Samba, a two-day course covering installation,
maintenance and troubleshooting of Samba networks serving Windows 98 and
NT clients." I'll send an email to them to find out if they have samba

It would be good to have some survey (like a Job Task Analysis) to base a
