[Samba] PGina & Samba

You're the second person to suggest vmware workstation to me.  It is a
little expensive for me but I'll look into it (it might be worth it if it
saves me time in the long run - that's how I'll get my boss to look at it!).

Does it allow you to use the Linux portion of your computer to act as a DHCP
server and assign different IP addresses to the different windows
workstations, all on the same computer?  That sounds a little hard to
believe for me, but I would think that it would be necessary in order to do
some testing.

You should look into getting a copy of VMWare Workstation.  You can setup a
complete network of VM machines to do your testing and not touch the
production network at all.

I have VM Workstation for Linux running on my Laptop and routinely run 4 to
5 VM's all at once.

I just bought a Dell PowerEdge 700 server with 4GB of RAM to run VMWare and
it is going to replace the 4 computers currently residing in my office.
