Ok, I just tested Windows 2000, logging into 2.0.7 PDC domain, and it

I know people have said it doesn't, but I did just this minute!! I
didn't change the passwords encryption, didn't change my smb.conf
(from when I used it for NT logons), the only thin I did do was an
upgrade to Windows 2000 from NT (as opposed to a clean install). So
at the CTRL/ALT/DEL login, I put in my samba user/pass/domain and
away she goes.

just thought some would like to know
