The idea of having several PDC is because like that is our work scheme, 
more than other thing.  We will consider your advise.  We apreciate your 
kind help.  Anyway, please, what is the function of a BDC if we have a 
master ldap and a slave ldap with automatic replicaction?  Is it enough to 
have one BDC for the one PDC? and how to manage several groups with only 
one PDC?

And about NAS, we are going to buy something that found directly in our 
country, e.g. from NetApp, but we are having trouble because of our 
ignorance about NAS and limited budget.  We are going to buy only one NAS 
box for storage and one for backups.
