   Are you possibly thinking of my very basic programme to replace the unix
passwd programme. I wrote it somewhat earlier in the NTDomain history and
have been using it since then. Works fine in our simple enviroment. I
believe a number of other people are using it too. I was a bit 'shy' of
putting it in the contributed directory at the time and posted it via my
web page, .

I now see the reason for sending such stuff directly to the 'Samba
Central', how do I do so ?
