I use samba 2.0.7 as a PDC for win NT clients in a production environment
with over 100 workstations. I am looking into win2k also. The Samba Black
Book says it is possible, but you have to use plain text passwords, and to
the registry hack in
Add: EnablePlainTextPassword and set dword to 00000001 The latest samba
dist includes this as a reg file, so the book says. Eoin, if you get it
working, please let me know, thanks!
