 No official PDC functionality in anything before 2.1 prealpha (CVS code
only) although 2.0.4b will act as a PDC well enough for most people. There
is no specific linux kernel version required for either of these AFAIK. In
answer to your previous mail, this list is for general samba DC questions.
Most of the samba team have recently been kept quite busy getting ready
for the code merge from hell and writing books.
