  Great, I'll be looking for them.

  You're welcome.  I need to get this working for NT as that is our
production environment. (~2500 Lab machines, ~25,000 users).

  One annoying thing that goes away with the LDAP code, is the "Your
password has expired" message.  I added a big number (42 * 24 * 60 *60)
to the password date and placed that in the password must change field.
The message went away and hopefully I won't see it again for 42 days.
Maybe a default password age option could be added to the password
routines/smbpasswd?  Right now I'm setting it by hand.

  The only thing I'm having problems with now, are the setting group
RIDs and adding group objects.  My administrator account for the domain
seems to have lost it's administrative privileges since I started using

  I figured out the schema from the code, but am confused as to how to
put the RIDs in.  Do I just put the straight RID in or run it through
the bit fiddling formula first?   Something else?
