This mail is coming his way too.

My problem right now is that I'm starting a pilot project in 
combining SAMBA (2.0.6 or maybe 7) with Win2000 TS (incl. Citrix 
Metaframe2000). Problem is getting Win2000 to logon to the 
SAMBA domain, if that works OK I'm convinced the TS with Citrix 
Neighborhood will work just fine (maybe some minor problems) 

In your mail furtheron you write about a Win2K PC:
- Is this a Win2K Server with TS running on it?
- And is it logging on to the SAMBA domain?
- If so, how?

You also speak of upgrading to Win2K with Citrix2000 on another 
department of your institute in one month.   
What are your conclusions up till now about logging on with a 
Win2K/Citrix Server to a SAMBA (2.0.7) Domain? can you:
- Join the SAMBA domain?
- loggon and run the login-script for instance?
- does a regular user grom the SAMBA userlist get his mappings 
according to his diverse group-memberships?
- can you use these groups from your SAMBA domain on your 
TS/Citrix Server?
