No, but maybe I did. I told someone that to make their samba (or NT)
controlled domain secure, to use NTws not 95/98. I still think my answer is
basicly correct, yes you can do all sorts of things to 95 to fix each
seperate avenue of attack but thats no substitute for a operating system
that is designed to be secure. NT certainly is not perfect but at least the
designers tried ! Over the years I have used some (but not all) of the
tricks mentioned, there was always something else needed and admin get
harder with each trick !

But lets get back to the chase, this list is all about using Samba PDC with
NTws, please lets keep it there !
