Lastly (I will shut up after this one),

When connecting to other servers (which are domain members, running Samba 
2.0.6a), I am only able to connect if my username and password are 
identical in the LOCAL smbpasswd file of THAT machine.  If I already have 
an account on the machine, but no smbpasswd entry, or if I have an entry 
but a different password, I cannot connect.

Also, and of more immediate importance, is when I connect to the PDC and 
view the shares.  Regardless of what user I login as, I see the standard 
list of shares, and the 'root' share (home directory for root).  Due to the 
default directory for the user root on Sun Solaris, this is of some concern 
(You can see the entire directory tree of the server).  I do not see what 
should be my home directory.  For example, if I am logged in as 'jfk', 
there is a listed directory of 'root' and there no directory 'jfk' 
listed.  However, if I try to connect by mapping a drive (and manually type 
in the entry \\PDC\jfk), I can connect.  Also, the 'net use r: /home' still
