Linux+Samba as a Win95 Password server

Hi all,

Me again :o)

Is it possible to configure Win95 clients and a Linux+Samba to permit
roving users.
In fact, what I want to do is having all Win95 users passwords on a server
which is looked up when a user is connecting on a client.
It would be easier for maintyaining such a system than having passwords on
all clients.
Is it possible only with Linux+Samba? If yes how to do it? what are the
security issues? (i guess i have to share all the passwords, and pwl files
are easy to crack. Is there a better way)?

ThanXX all,
