 The concept of a PDC is every machine logs into the domain 
 controller to get access to n/w resources(file and print sharing).

 and in windows if i have a NT or 2000 machine as a domain 
 controller,every other workstation or a client logs in to DC for 
 n/w resources.

 And samba is a server software on linux server,which i 
 assume(iam new to linux n/w'ing,so still fighting hard to
 familiarize linux)is configured on linux server to 
 allow linux machines visible on windows n/w neighbourhood.

and windows have to be logged in samba server to get n/w resources.

But wat abt linux systems on the n/w.Is it possible that once linux  
machines starts,similarly like windows clients ask to give a 
username pasword pair to get into samba server for n/w access.

 ...if anyone is having an idea abt this,pls share it with me.and 
any kind of guidance is appreciable.

 thanks in advance.
