Gary asked:
| Does anyone have any idea how Solaris PC-Netlink compares to Samba?

Sure: I did a paper on it this spring, I'll see if it's been published
In the meantime:

- it does ACLS, but stores them in a file, which you need to save
  during backups. They **do not** control access from the Unix side.

- it will happily be a domain controller

- it doesn't do ldap

- it doesn't do single-signon (yet)

- The 1.2 version is faster than it was, so the client limit
  in no longer 1000 or less.
