SWAT does not have SSL support (AFAIK). Use webmin instead (and it also 
won't trash comments in your smb.conf).

Hint: Mandrake 9.0 has winbind authentication support out-the-box, just 
do an 'expert' install, and choose 'Windows Domain' as authentication 
method (during installation), and enter your domain name in caps (it 
doens't get uppercase for making the /home/%D). Then, reboot, and log in 
with your domain account.

Unfortunately, the GUI for this isn't avialable after installation (yet).
