Well, I'm not very familiar with Windows administration.

Will LGPO allow me to make software installation (I know GPO allows it, 
i.e. when a certain PC or a certain user logs in, I can easily 
install/upgrade desired software on that machine / for that user - 
without user knowing anything - I think this is called IntelliMirror).

Will it be possible with Samba?
