Thanks. This works well now.  I think that LDAP.txt ought to mention
though that

> homeDrive=Z

is not a valid syntax. It seems that you have to suffix it with `:' for
Windows to be happy.  I'm looking at getting policies to work now
because it seems to not work. The NTDOM FAQ mentions that
"case preserve = yes" is a good idea, but I assume that one
means "preserve case" here.  While looking at the logs with the debug
levels uped I can't see it ever trying to open ntconfig.pol; although it
does do some requests for the pipe \NETLOGON.

On another note though I was happy to see that password changing worked
perfectly. Good work!
