You are welcome to use any chapter of my book "Samba-3 by Example" for this 
magasine. I would suggest chapter 5 or 6 as it is they are the most 
interesting. A future article could be based on Chapters 8 and/or 9.

This book is part of the official Samba documentation. It has also been 
published by Prentice-Hall (Addison Wesley). It provides completely canned 
network solutions for a series of progessively larger and more complex 
networks. If an administrator chooses the chapter that represents his 
business need and then follows each step carefully he/she will have a fully 
functional network implementation.

If you would like me to write a specific separate article I could do that, but 
not before your deadline.

You can download the "Samba-3 by Example" book from the Samba web site. It has 
been released under the GPL license terms. All I ask is that you give proper 
attribution in your publication. The URL is:


If you visit http://www.samba.org/samba/docs you will also find links to the 
HTML version.

Kindest regards,
John T.
