probably 3.0 in the fall of 2000 (we can only hope....)

If you run Win2000 in legacy mode (i.e. NT 4 domains)
In other words: no, TNG is aimed at supporting the NT4 domain structure,
and not the Win2000 one.
[Wether or not using / implementing the Win2000 structure was discussed a while back.]

3.0 i believe, but this might be a questin for Luke

I believe the main functionality is reached, however samba is still in heavily
developement. Several of the current implementations work, but they have issues,among them security.  I WOULD NOT recomend anyone to run TNG in production environment, as this might break your server on a daily basis.

see above

Maybe someone could confirm some of this stuff (Luke?? Richard??...)
and then Lars could add it to this FAQ's and stuff
