I've built an afs cell, a kerberos kdc, an openldap server, all 
kerberized. Now all linux clients can login on the cell using k5 
authentication, finding informations about their home dirs with ldap. 
Their home reside on the afs cell, which allows r/w access since it 
releases a token from the k5 ticket. All macosx clients can login as 
well... but what about windows? ^___^;;; 

I've been sent here from a kerberos group, telling me samba could be

I'd like to avoid creating windows users on every windows client... and
I know I can set up an AD server, creating users on kerberos/afs/ldap
AND the same users on AD... quite long... 

Is samba of any use? Can I grant tickets and tokens via samba, mapping
windows home directories on the afs home dir? This information can be
retrieved from openldap... 

Any hint?
