Greetings Samba list,

I need to set up a new lab domain.  I would like to set it up with all
Samba and BSD.  I have a pII-233 w/64m sdram 3com 10/100 running BSD I am
planning to use and set on a switched 100mbps backbone.
Question 1.) How many machines would the above spec machine running a samba
server handle for domain logons? (I need to logon about 200-300 95Stations
w/logon scripts and custom folders)

Question 2.)  In my test I used a config.pol in the NetLogon share and
could not get a list of accounts from the server with adduser/browse from
the policy editor.  Is this an error on my part or will it not work with a
Samba Domain?

Question 3.)  Why is domain controller recommended  to be no; Will the
samba box not be or act like a PDC in an all Samba Domain?

Question 4.)  Speed wise how will it compare to an actual NT doing the work?

Thank you Samba list for your help and experience!
