Hi all,

The default user created by smbpasswd does not have the permission to 
write to any directory on an NT client.  This causes many minor 
problems.  I wish to give all users the permission to READ, WRITE, & 
EXECUTE in the C:\TEMP directory.  How do I configure this on my UNIX 
PDC (in the smb.conf file)?

Also, I remembered reading about a little utility called 
which read in the /etc/passwd file and then create the SMB passwords.  I 
couldn't seem to find this file.  Where can I download it?
