The ubiquitous "someone" should put this sort of question (and answer) in
a FAQ or several FAQs on the site and mirrors. It seems to get
asked a lot. I'd volunteer but I don't know who manages the FAQs. I think
it would be appropriate to mention it at least in the SaMBa FAQ and the
SaMBa NT Domain FAQ.
