Yes, but remember - serving logins for Win95/98 works perfectly
in the current (1.9.18p10) stable release. We will not release
Samba2 and break that. If it causes trouble for NT when using
a Samba PDC then until we get a handle on the problem then
we have to go with the more common case for our users - which
is to support Win95/98.

Just to scare you - remember *millions* of people & 
Samba installations are depending on us to get this
right & not ship broken code - I kid you not !

That sometimes keeps me awake at nights....


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
