Here people,
There was a discussion earlier about merging the Samaba passwords into the 
UNIX passowrds and adding a field... I hope this does not mean that the 
option to have two separate password files with separate passwords (one 
for SMB shares and one for shell access) will be replaced...

Could anyone confirm that the admins will be afforded both options, or at 
least be able to keep a seperate SMB user/password file?
(Seperate files are good for security, and allow segmentation of access 
to the system.)
