Things that need looking at:

1. MS Windows 9x/Me User Level Access Control

2. NT4 Domain User Manager can not set/remove Interdomain Trusts

3. Windows Me clients still randomly blue screen on a passive network

4. MS Windows XP Pro - use of MMC console to manage domain users
	- account changes can not be written

5. Should include sample scripts or example Unix tool configs for the
	add user script
	delete user sript
	add group script
	delete group script

None are sho stoppers IMHO.
