Quite simply:  What do I have to do to make a WinXP client accept a
smartcard for login, when in a Samba4 domain.  

I have a CA and tokens, but not much knowledge on how to use them... (I

Aladdin token and software).

smartcard integration?  With the right pcsc drivers loaded, it should
mostly be a matter of configuration with system-config-auth.
