[Samba] win/linux connect problem

If you want to allow your w2k clients to acces your linux server through an
identification on a w2k PDC server ( so NOT your linux samab server ), you
have to put following parameters in your smb.conf file:
workgroup = <domain name>
security = domain
encrypt = yes
password server = <w2k PDC server name>
Is that configuration mentionned above you'd like to have ??? If yes, you
can also add your linux server in the server manager of your w2k server.
For the read-only mode, you can set "writable = no" in each share. But this
will put this share in read-only for everybody.
