[Samba] W2K CALS AND SAMBA

If I understand what MS describes a CAL to be, then ANY machine that
connects to the W2K file server (for file/print access) is considered a
Client that requires a CAL. This would (I believe) also be the case if
you setup the W2K fileserver to allow FTP access and you used FTP to
connect to it from that Linux/UNIX Samba running system you wish to have
browse the W2K system.
If CALs are getting you down, take a look at using Samba as a PDC and
get rid of those silly CALs. I did so here and while there were a few
minor hiccups, we are running quite smoothly and I can swear that file
transfer times are WAY up. (I never calculated the time difference, I
just don't have the time.)

Do I take a CAL of any type when using a samba client to connect to a w2k
file server or view the shares on a w2k file server ?
