There's a list of Samba mirror sites at http://www.samba.org

These mirror sites contain documentation, general info, downloads, book
references, (even t-shirts!) all pertaining to Samba.

Also, you may find the books "Using Samba" (O'Reilly), "SAMS Teach Yourself
Samba in 24 Hours" (MacMillan), and "Special Editition: Using Samba"
(Que/MacMillan) handy references.  At least one, "Using Samba", is available
on-line (http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/samba/index.html)

If you decide to use floating policies, there's a good book out by O'Reilly
called "Windows System Policy Editor".

Hope that'll get you started...
