Do you have a domain? If so, you may want to consider making it a member
server. Otherwise, you'll be stuck with your current situation of
maintaining user accounts on your server (of course, this depends on you
not using Windows XP/home on your workstations). If you can set it up as
a member server, then you can grant access to domain accounts and/or groups.
To address your immediate concerns however, most of your old smb.conf
should work. It's been a long time since I've worked with 2.2, but you
may want to check to see if you have any .tdb files associated with your
Samba 2.2 setup. If so, move that entire directory over to your new machine.
