Hmm. Interesting. So it would be necessary for all users to have system
accounts, then.

I'll have to go reading...

At the moment, the W2K Kerberos is compatible with the
MIT Kerberos 5. I successfully installed Kerberos clients
on Linux that authenticate to the W2K KDC and it also works
the other way round.
I don't know how Samba works with Kerberos authentication.
I read that it only works with plain text passwords (2.0.7.
at least).
