A question in this.  Does the Win2000 domain need to be in "mixed" mode in
order for the Samba server to be able to be a member server in the
domain?  Or can the Samba server be a member server in a "native" Win2000
domain?  I ask because our existing Win2000 domain is running in native
mode, and to convert means a reinstall (of course, it's a M$ product).
