Greetings ...

	I hope John is not going to give me too much up hill, but I have found 
a few corrections and suggestions ... here they go ...

	Section which is some thing like ..., which needs to be changed to

	Section 7.4.2 which is some think like ... All ADS domains will 
automatically create SRV records in the DNS zone _kerberos.REALM.NAME 
for each KDC in the realm, then _kerberos.REALM.NAME needed to be 
changed to

with better explaination at

	Section 7.4.6, we might need to relook at this, because I see my Win2K3 
server has SRV for _kerberos._tcp and _ldap._tcp but not _kerberos._udp, 
so I wonder for M$ support the udp options, or if it would work out of 
the box better if we give intructions on how to put these records in ...

	Section 7.6.1, I have a not to look at "nbtstat -RR" and "nbtstat -c" 
to help with this ... but will have to see what I meant with this ... 
sorry ...

	Section 7.6.3, might be worth stating that Samba 3.0.1 has this has the 
default, and should not need to be set, but double checking with 
"testparm -s -v |grep spnego" is also good ...

	Section 10.3.3, a few things need to be corrected, and some things need 
to be explained better ... need to be changed to 

	also can be added
_ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.Domain can return all the Domain Controllers

	Maybe a link to which 
explains how to verify SRV records ... and also give a command line 
explain, like ...

dig @ -t any

	Also, everthing below does not work 
for me, maybe again, we could put in a few examples ... I would like to 
understand these other options better.
