Doesn't really matter... :) My main point is that I can get Samba working
under 9x and 2000, and preferably later on with LDAP support (yeah,
currently I'm on the LDAP Trip ;) ).

I don't have NT available here anymore. I get some calls on the Linux box on
port 445 (IIRC, could also be 449 or so). I looked up in my /etc/services
and wasn't able to get any information on this port. Anyone please tell me
what this port is user for?

So I'll go my way on the next CVS tree (*_GOOD) :)
