I figured I would go ahead and quickly summarize about my question.
Several people of already responded to me that what I ask is possible
but I should direct my questions to samba at samba.
I already feel more comfortable about our tasks.

> Hello,

> We have a fairly large SUN box where all student accounts are located

> We would like to be able to make the thin-client logon authentication

> Also, we would like for any specific profiles, such as Netscape

Thank you.
