Hi all

I have installed winbind and every thing works fine. but i have one big 
problem. On the Windows PDC the
Username has a big charakter like this Administrator or Peter. Now the 
Problem: When i make a ftp connection
in with username Peter everytings works fine and i see all files with 
the correct permission. but when i use peter
(lowercase) then the login works but i haven't got any files. This is 
because the permission of the file is set to Peter
and not to peter. have anyone any ideas to configure samba or winbind to 
set the username to lowercase so the
the permission is every time in lowercase. like unix not like windows.

onuris:/home/aaron# ls -al
total 16
dr-xr-xr-x    4 Aaron    Domain U     4096 Apr 22 02:18 .
drwxrwsr-x    8 root     staff        4096 Apr 22 02:18 ..
dr-x------    5 Aaron    Domain U     4096 Apr 22 02:18 Maildir
dr-xr-xr-x    2 Aaron    Domain U     4096 Apr 22 02:18 www

And the second question is: can i set the group for all user to the 
same, that has authendicatet by the windows pdc?
eg.: winusers

greets and sorry for my bad english
