Well, there is Samba 2.0.7, which can authenticate users from Windows NT
4.0 clients probably up to about SP 5, as long as you do not use NTLMv2.

Then there is Samba TNG, which can handle Windows NT clients as well as
NT5/Win2K clients and has a lot more stuff implemented such that things
like User Manager for domains works better etc.

Then there is the head code, in which some merging has been occurring. So
it may also handle some aspects of NT5/Win2K logons now, but I have not
tried it so I don't know.
