  I am trying to set up Samba 2.2.1a as a PDC, and I have it working
now using the setup as indicated in the PDC Howto.  For some reasons
that I would not get into, it is not desirable to have Unix user names
ending with "$".  Is it possible to avoid this?  Here are two
proposed solutions:

  1. Use a Unix account of a different name, and use "username map"
     to map the samba user to the Unix account.  Does this work?
     If so, is it possible to use multiple samba machine accounts
     with only one Unix account?

  2. Just have samba machine accounts and no corresponding Unix accounts
