	I should comment that Samba's security model
	``fits inside'' an orange book categoey and level.

	A colleague and I described samba security as three-level,
	but not in the ``secret" -vs- "top secret" sense
	of levels: more like
		1) host level -- what machine can connect
		2) Service-level -- per-share limitations
		3) user-level -- limitations on particular users.
	all sitting on top of (inside of) normal Unix
