NT4.0 PDC and Samba help

It looks like you may not need to make Samba as PDC ... Do you have a NT
server already ? If yes, just make samba join the domain controlled by NT
server, and you will be able to do all you want except authenticating NT
logins from samba...I think this is not what you want, you just need a
file server. In my view, you should be more than fine with samba joining
Nt controlled domain.

If you want specifics, let  me know. I have done this recently.

Hope this helps.
