Hi ,

   I am using samba-2.0.6-9 version .I am accessing all the shares and homw
folders using smbpasswd file. Because of this end users are confusing between
/etc/passwd & /etc/smbpasswd files.

Is there any option to use /etc/passwd files instead of using
/etc/smbpasswd.If so Please help me regarding in this and also guide me how to
do that.

Thanks in Advance
Mohan P
