I am totally new to UNIX and to SAMBA so don't be too hard on me.

I have been looking at the possibility of using Solaris 8 for Intel as the
server OS with clients running NT or Windows 2000 for an upcoming project.
Initially SAMBA, from the reviews, looked to be the PERFECT solution.
However, been working for the past several days and have not been able to
get my NT box to logon to SAMBA. I can ping the Solaris 8 (SAMBA) box..but
can't logon...can't even mount/map a disk.

I have followed Step # 2...many times..drank lots of coffee. Keep looking
over my smb.conf file and making changes but felt that it was time to ask
for some help from people who may have been there already. Any suggestions
would be appreciated, I have attached a copy of my smb.conf file for all to
laugh at...

Also, reading through the documentation I came across section 6.7 -
DOMAIN_CONTROL.txt. It was very disappointing to find that SAMBA really can
not act as an NT Domain Controller? This was a KEY reason why we were
looking at SAMBA...some rumors that I have heard say there are plans in
SAMBA version 3.0 for this? Is this a true statement? If so..anybody have an
ETA on version 3.0?
