Thanks very much for the replies. May i ask a few questions regarding the 
replies? sorry if the qustions are too obvious to some of you.

I thought Samba could just act as a client and request tickets from the real 
Kerberos server, just like what the normal kerberos clients do? Does it work 
with Kerberos V? cos I read from some forums that it only works with Kerberos 

Thanks again for your help.
