A fair comment - I guess that in the interests of my making the switch
as invisible as possible to the users (and my sanity) I should look at
replacing the NT4 domain with a samba domain, yes.

I'd still like the single-box solution.  I don't have hundreds or
thousands of users so, performance-wise, can I still have the domain
authentication and file server on the same box?
