hi mark,

if you have configured NT servers to download policies and/or profiles,
then you are in a very good position to understand what to do here, using
samba PDC instead of NT PDC....

look up "logon script" and "profile path" and "home dir": these are the
parameters you will need.  also, the existing docs DOMAINS.txt etc etc:
it's all there: [netlogon] share etc.  should be easy to do.  someone else
from an aus. uni posted that they had got profiles set up, too: check the
samba-ntdom archives, ok?

good luck!
