[Samba] Question on samba as PDC and fileserver

For a project I am working on I have to configure a Redhat 7.2 server as the
file server and PDC for a small company network of 12 workstations and a
couple of network printers. The client was happy to have a Linux server as
it will provide IMAP, DNS, and tape backup of the email and home
My question is, how well is Samba working as a PDC, how should I configure
the network so that Samba authenticates the users and provides name
resolution for the Windows machines.
Anything else to be aware of, any gotchas?
