Experimental code normally does :)

root preexec scripts set for the profile share automate this

Sorry.  The user password change has not been implemented yet.  To what 
password changes are you referring?

Again. it's experiemental code.  Much of the PDC functionality 
is **not** implemented.  Sorry if you had thought otherwise.

BTW...the problems you mention are well known.  JF is working on 
the printer support.  The code is not completely finished and 
has therefore not been checked in at all.  Does anyone know if 
the profile problem mentioned is a bug in the NT client or the 
Samba code?
