Perhaps you're talking about making nt use plaintext passwords. A registry
edit must take place to do that. However SAMBA can use encrypted passwords.
You have to set encrypt passwords = yes in /etc/smb.conf.

I guess you have to do the same if you're connecting with w2k clients. Also
if you're using w2k maybe you should upgrade to 2.0.7

	at winnt 4.0 i have to make an entry in the registry to connect
server at the unix-site. 
	should i have anything in the same way at win2000?
