Hi there,

I wonder if you can help,

We have an application that requires a users home directory to be accessible
even though they are not setup as a linux user. eg:

stuart is on his windows machine (logged in as stuart)
he goes through the network to find his samba server
on the samba server he finds the folder 'stuart' and can read and write to
but he does not have a linux account setup.

Is this possible?

thanks a mil,
