Right now in my lab I'm using Samba 2.2.5-10 from Red Hat (in the 8.0
release).  I'm hoping to put 2.2.8x in production on my new server inside of
a month.  I'm waiting on the hardware to begin testing that.

I may begin looking at 3.x after I get my new system in place.  I wish it
was "ready for prime time", but I just don't think that any Alpha/Beta code
is ready.  I'll wait until it's officially released to begin thinking about

I've heard (and believe) that Samba 3 would emulate exactly what I have now
with my NT 4.0 setup, (PDCs in each office with Trusts between them), but I
don't have time to wait.  My File Server *needs* to be replaced now just so
I can handle the load.
