 I've got the Windows 2000 beta pack (shame on me :) and have the same
problem. I'm going to a Microsoft Conference which is coming up in about two
weeks - it's a big discussion about implementing windows 2000.. I'd like to
bring up samba into the discussion, because I know it's widely used, and
Microsoft have already some "support" about it (or rather a heap of pages on
their website saying that "certain Unix SMB clones, such as Samba" are able
to use devices on computers such as $C etc.)

 If anyone else has any questions that they want me to bring up, I'd be
happy to ask.. The only reason I'm really going is to suss out how samba and
windows 2000 will work.. I'm definitely not going back to Windows NT Server;
Once Samba supports blocking access to certain users using certain computer
like NT did, then the implementation is pretty much complete in my mind..
