Create a user in the policy file with the <username> you
want. This works with WinNT under the experiemental Samba
PDC as well. Groups are not supported though.

Do you mean as a PDC or simply a file server. For information
on Samba as a PDC check out the NTDOM FAQ linked off the main
If you are planning on only using it as a file server, there's a
registry setting neccessary to enable the client to access shares using
plain text passwords (docs/NT4_PlainPassword.reg) or you can setup the
samba server to use encrypted passwords (docs/ENCRYPTION.txt). No other
real big issues besides this.
