Installation notes taken during an installation I did in November 2003 may
be useful to you. You can obtain them from:


Please note that given that the nss_winbind.so.1 library is installed
under /usr/loca/samba/lib you must instruct the dynamic link loader to
search this path. The tool you need to use for that is called 'crle' (it
is a standard Solaris 9 system tool).
