In that case, we all seem to be arguing the same side... :)  Yes, I don't
think they should all fall under the same parameter, especially when the
documentation hammers home the point that Win9x network logons are not the
same thing as NT domain logons.

Are there ever cases when an NT machine that isn't a PDC or BDC should accept
NT client logons?  If not, then only two config options are needed: one for NT
client logons, and one for Win9x client logons.  Question is, which should
inherit the name 'domain logons'...
