Is it possible for samba to disable LM authentication in favor of NTLM
or (preferably) NTLMv2 as described in

Can samba process NTLMv2 passwords?  (If not, is the effort

Does samba currently store NTLMv2 passwords?  

Does samba support the 128bit encryption (is this SSL? or something

Support for some of these options (and notes to indicate what matches to
what in configuration files, or even better using the same numbers)
would greatly enhance a networks security.

(Even just allowing the removal of LM passwords from the system would
benefit system security, if it it known no Win9X clients intend to

Hope this will be considered,
