G'day all,

I am new to the list, so please be careful with me :-)....Some background I
am a developer not a network person, but I do like to play with hardware.

I have just installed samba 1 9 18p8 (I think this is the version number) on
Linux redhat 5.1.

What I would like to do I have one of the PC's be able to see shares on the
Linux box without having to log in at work, obviously I want my wife to be

Now I think I should be able to get around this be enabling 'domain logon'
on the Linux box, but I am not sure if this is going to effect by works
network in any way.
Can anyone shed some light, or am I up a creek with no paddle...
