I've just finished setting up a samba (2.2.7) hosted domain with WinXP Pro
and had no problems. The samba server is an AMD cpu running RH7.3. I followed
the procedures set out in the combined samba docs at
http://au1.samba.org.samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf and had no problems.
The only additional step was to apply the
fix and set it to 0 to the
registry on each XP workstation you want in the domain. Make sure that root is a
samba user (doesn't
need the same password as for root on the server) and when asked for a domain
admin to add the workstation to the domain use root with the samba password. XP
Home cannot join a domain.
Hope this helps.
