Is that true for sure?  The documentation that comes with Samba
states that you can get Windows clients to login to Samba and
authenticate.  I read all of the documentation, and from what I
can tell either:

1) It can be done.

2) It can't be done, and the documentation is wrong/wishful.

Since I'm know expert at this (yet), either is entirely possible
I suppose.  All I really want is for the machine to authenticate
network logons in place of NT.

I've got 2.0.4b downloaded but not yet installed, should I
upgrade from 1.9.18 to 2.0.4b?

Also, my posting was incorrect, the version of samba that I was
really using was:


I doubt that that makes any difference though.
