	Thank you so much for you willingness to help me out I truly appreciate it. I would love to see your conf file if that wouldn't be a problem. The PDC will be a Win 2k3 small business edition server and all the clients are 2k and XP pro. The last time I used samba was version 2.0.x and I always used it as the PDC never a member server, so to say I'm rusty would be an understatement ... LOL!

I just did a similar install using FreeBSD 5.2.1 and Samba 3.0.3, installed using the latest port.  It works great, but there are a few hiccups.  The winbind integretion doesn't seem to work as documented.  The UNIX side still needed accounts to work, although it does authenticate to the Win2k ADS.  Ihave the accounts created "on the fly" on the UNIX side and that works great.

If you need more details, email me.
