This shouldnb't be any problem. I don't know about PDC's but a wins
server is simple with samba. Invoke the proper parameters in your global
section and you should be ok.
Read about wins in smb.conf. (It says not to use wins support unless you
have a multisubnet network, but, I don't understand that.) Do you really
need a wins server? Would just broadcasting for netbios names do it?
There are a lot of ways to do name resolution, BTW. You could just put
all the names into lmhosts files, if you wanted to and didn't have a
big network. Whatever works.
