Hi again !

OK, after hacking a bit, that's how I solved the issue

- follow the instructions in the Winbind Howto and joining a Domain with a 
linux box. This is all to be found in the PDF on the site
- and : use a wins server.

I set up the PDC as a WINS server (I am I running against a Wall doing this 
?), and set up the VLOUCHI server to use the PDC as WIns Server.

It seems to work.

Is it OK I did it that way ?

Have a nice day !
