i guess the real question here is what is your interest?  are you more 
interested in having the login functionality when the network link is 
down or are you more interested in toying with the notion of having 
samba run on a mini box?

i can certainly help you with the former if you wish.  i have set up an 
old linux box as a bdc at a remote location (my parent's house) to allow 
them all functionality of being in the domain even when their crappy dsl 
goes down and we lose the vpn link betweeen us.  it works like a charm.
