Hmm well..

You seem a little pissed off.. I would appriciate people who answered with
OUT the stuck up "YOU SHOULD OF READ THIS" crap..
cause lets be honest the simple fact is that if people read EVERYTHING we
wouldn't have any questions on this thing or atleast if there were
questions, No one would be able to answer them. So i suggest you chill...
take delight in the fact that you answered a question... and hope that
someone still decides to answer your previous question without saying stuff
like "if you read website you wouldn't of asked such a stupid question"


P.S. what does "Samba 2.0 will does not fully implement PDC functionality,
this is clearly
stated on the web site."  ?? you say it will and then you say it won't?
