>Plan :

>- Windows NT 4.0 architecture.
>- Windows 2000 architecture.
>- Mixed architecture (W2K and NT 4.0).
>- How does it work ?(technically).
>- Introduction to SAMBA ( What it provide, what it is not).
>- Samples integration schems.
>- How does it work ?
>- Planed scenarios to migrate to a full SAMBA domain in replacement of
>Windows one's.
