Kixstart is not only a set of files that are served
out.  It is an RPC service that runs on the server
that allows Win9x clients to do things like determine
whether they are a member of a specific NT group. 
Think about it - there is no way do do this on a 9x
client without some sort of talking to the server.
The question still stands then - Kixstart for SAMBA?
(I'm interested in it running on server platforms
other than Linux as well).
