First thanks for the answers. The Linux side is solved. My problem remains
the Windows side of things.
My windowns are 9x not NT and Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't work on them. Any ideas?
I'm hoping for some sort of application. Can it be that for an NT network you
have to have nt clients or users can't change their password from their own
machine? Is there anything available for DOS?
