Yes, but why authenticate with NTDoman FOO unless you are going to use
services available in NTDomain FOO? If you operate in one workgroup and
authenticate in a separate NTDomain, then your authentication buys you
If you do peer-to-peer within a workgroup and also use services within
the NTDomain, then I suppose this makes some sort of sense. Still, it's
a bit awkward.
