FYI: I just fixed the W2KSP2 joing a Samba 2.2.x PDC
bug. It will be in the 2.2.1 release (more testing
needed on the printer problem...).

I can log in correctly as a UNIX user and get my profile
loaded with W2kSP2.

If you have CVS access you should try it out (2.2 or HEAD).


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
