yes, I think so. I haven't tested the pam_winbind stuff recently, but
I believe it works.

I'm planning on putting together an up-to-date HOWTO in the near
future. I'll announce it on this list when its done (it will be on the
Samba wiki).

you may well find things that need fixing, but it shouldn't need a lot
before you can show some success.

Please do! Maybe add to the HOWTO that I'm planning on doing?

Cheers, Tridge
