0. How do I know if I need Samba Primary Domain Controller (PDC) support
and how much of its functionality is currently implemented?

The ability to act as a PDC for Windows NT 3.51 and 4.0 clients.  This
includes adding NT machines to the domain and

     authenticating users logging into the domain. 

     Domain account can be viewed using the "User 
     Manager for Domains" for a small number ( ~4-8) of accounts. 

     Viewing resources on the Samba PDC via the "Server 
     Manager for Domains" from the NT client. 

     Windows 95 clients will allow "user level" security 
     to be set but will not currently allow browsing of accounts. 

Things tend to change very quickly though.
