there are bugs in it. you'd be better off using the BRANCH_NTDOM version.
see the public cvs instructions in http://samba.anu.edu.au/cvs.html and
use a tag of BRANCH_NTDOM.
if you do this, the workstation trust account smbpasswd entries must be of
the 0080 is important: see ntdomain.h ACB_xxxx #defines for the reason.

general important rule here for the netlogon share - do this:
guest ok = no
locking = no

almost right: it needs to be saturn1$ not saturn1 (it's a trust account).
so, see the format above. i'll update docs/NTDOMAIN.txt in BRANCH_NTDOM.

hm. this isn't right: you should at least be able to find it (but not
join it, because of the bugs in the 1.9.18alpha version :-).
can you browse a share on saturn (don't do Start | File | Run | \\saturn1,
do Start | File | Run | \\saturn1\homes)?
if you can't, fix this first (standard procedure that has nothing to do
