What problems are you seeing with 2.2.2?
One thing we've noticed with W2k and 2.2.2 is that every time a user logs
on with Windows 2000, it creates a new profile (eg, "user" "user.1"
"user.2" "user.3" etc.). We haven't really dealt with Windows 2000
before now, so we're not sure if it is a Windows 2000 issue or a Samba
NT4 domain logins work just fine, though.
It is financially more expensive to go to prison than to attend Harvard.
