Hi Gary,

First things first... RedHat 7.0 uses a different network superserver
called xnet.... Just my opinion, it ugly and an unnecessary change to
fundamental unix networking, but that just my opinion.  I can't help you
too much with that configuration, but I'm very willing to help you get
samba running.

Do you mean your samba installation to act as the PDC for your NT
Domain, or is an NT/Win2k system fulfilling that task?  Do you know
which version of samba is installed on your system?
