I'm a Unix bigot, so I tend to reccomend making the
Windows clients member of an ordinary Unix-style
domain using Samba as a combined authentication, print and
file server, and managing the samba server as just
another server in a vax-free vaxcluster of servers (;-))
Windows domains are cool, but they start you down the
path to many individual servers and many many windows admins.
[We used to have 5 Win and OS/2 SMB servers: I replaced
them with one Unix box when the PC guy quit due to overwork]
