I think I can wait (even if I'll try also the migration with samba 2.2.x). ;)
But I would like to help you testing things out, so I would like to know 
what to try in Samba3.0alpha. this is the main reason I would like to find 
documentation about migration utilities in 3.0.
So, if I would like to test "net rpc vampire", what are the steps? I can 
guess: set up my winNT PDC and my lan, connect a linux box, use the 
command.... But my question is: to use "vampire", the linux box must have 
joined the domain (as a standalone workstation, for example), or must be 
"outside" the windows network?

Yes, I know this very well... I was thinking about these steps: migrate 
PDC, and,later, set up a BDC.

Thank you very much!
