There is still one thing I can not get to work: If there
are directorys in the Windows user profile that have
the dos 'read-only' attribute samba 2.2 writes them with
mode rwx in the profile share on the Unix system, it should be
r-x. Windows 2000 uses the read only attribute to find out
if the directory acts as a normal directory or as a 'shortcut to...'

Ok - but sometimes you have to...

Can someone update the pdc-faq? I think some people (me too) get confused
since /usr/sbin/useradd and /usr/sbin/adduser are there on most
Linux systems but take different parameters.

Should this be a default for Windows 2000 clients?

I think there have been same permission problems during pinter driver upload
in the cvs from 26.3.01 it seems to work with the cvs version from 27.3.01.
Don't know if the problem is also in the alpha 3 ftp-Version.

Is there a policy howto for Windows 2000 clients? 
Any kind of emulation of the W2000 Server group policys?
