Currently I am writing on a client management software. It gives the 
Administrator complete control over their Windows 2000/XP machines from 
a web interface. In this software the clients have to authenticate 
themselves on the server. We decided to store as much machine specific 
settings in LDAP as possible, because our Samba already stores machine 
information in LDAP and we do not want to start a new data source.
