I am a complete novice to this world.
We are trying to figure out what sort of functionality Samba can give 
us in merging Unix and Windows (98, 2000, XP)machines onto one file 
server. The windows machines are to mount the shared directory from 
the server and see it like it is its own disk, roaming user prifles 
need to be configured on Samba such that anyone at any PC can use his 
own settings and use his computer sitting on the table in his office.

Basically I am trying to find out what functionality resides in Samba 
v3.0 to configure theseoptions for Windows machines. Where can I find 
documentation/help for this sort of thing.

I realise I am an amateur and this may be a basic question but please 
bear with me.
