I'm catching alot of flake about my suggestion that win 9x machine be part
of a domain.

Here is the question that I would ask anyone considering whether to use a
workgroup setup of a domain?  Do you need to control access to certain
shares and do you enjoy spending all of you time configuring peoples

Personally, I like having the ability to restrict access to certain shares
on my network.  I also don't like to spend all of my time configuring
machines and updating usernames and passwords.  That's why I use a domain.
If someone changes their password, the change is recorded in one place and
accessible by all.
