I'm a teacher whose responsibility includes looking after the Computers
as our site - and am *not* a techno. We've/I've happily used a Linux
server/SAMBA combination for our clients, but now we have a NT server
and a bunch of Windows98 clients to 'tack' onto our NET. All the users
are set up on the Linux box.
I can cope with upgrading SAMBA -'rpms' :-) (we currently use 2.0.3),
but the process of D/Lding the csv, then using the head branch code
is unrealistic for me. [too hard]
I note that the 2.0.x releases can be a Domain PDC/controller for Win9x
and for the NT server I'd appreciate some simple Y/N answers to the
below so I can work out how to proceed..
1. Can users change their SAMBA-PDC PW's from a Win9x client?
2. Will SAMBA-PDC authentication work from the Win9x clients and
the NT server without using encrpted PW's - IF the appropriate
registry alterations are done?
3. The NT server has been set as PDC [by the supplier] - do I need to
re-install NT to be able to use it with a SAMBA PDC
