You will need to use CVS to download the BRANCH_NTDOM source code in or
der to get the samba NT PDC support. See
for gneral cvs instrauctions.  Then read docs/NTDOMAIN.txt for
information.  YOu also might want to look into the samba-ntdom mailing
list for information directly related to Samba and NT Domains.
