Ok, that is nice to at least know then.  Why, may I ask, does the
outdated documentation that comes with samba 1.9.18xx even elude
to the fact that you can set up PDC, let alone convince you that
you can authenticate logons then?

Very strange indeed.

Allright, that is great then, I am in the right place.  I'm now
starting to get some very useful answers too.  Hopefully I'll
have something running soon enough that serves my purposes.

Basically, for my sample test LAN, I'm wanting to set up a samba
server to allow domain logons from a single Win95 machine, and a
Linux machine.  I want to put some shares on that machine, and
perhaps have per user or per machine logon batchfiles.  Roaming
profiles possibly later...

Right now, I'd just like to see the win95 box allowed to logon to
the network.  Any ideas of how to set up this simple setup?
