Howdy Keith,

Samba as PDC is pre-alpha, pre-release software - use at your own risk.  
It changes daily if not hourly at times.  It is not fully featured yet 
but it is quickly getting there.

Have you read the documentation on the web site www.samba.org?  Read all 
of the files in http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/

Also read http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/ntdom_faq/samba_ntdom_faq.html 

If you have not used samba before not being an PDC then I suggest you 
first get that going.  Read all the documentation that is included two or 
three times to really understand it - you have a steep learning curve.  
If things aren't working then follow the directions in 
http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/DIAGNOSIS.html to the letter - it is your 

If you don't know anything about configuring a PDC then I suggest you 
read the last 4 or 5 months of the samba-dom archive because you'll need 
the concepts that are discussed and more.  Also be comfortable with 
running and configuring normal samba first.  You have an even steeper 
learning curve here.

Be prepared to experiment - heavily.

BTW - this list hates HTML email messages so please do not use it.

	Good luck,
