BTW this book is a treasure !)
But the constraint for netbios aliases is that all sales, accounting and
admin users are in the same workgroup : each one can see all users.
How can I obtain that a user in sales group only see the netbios sales
server and the other sales PCs ?
One idea would be to have a "multi workgroup" samba server, but i can't
