why fly by the seat of your pants on this when the documentation tells
you what you need to know?
see http://www.samba.org/samba/docs - the "By Example" where it
discusses PDC's and BDC's and how to manage them

relates to the posix structures on each UNIX/Linux system that you offer
shell accounts and thus, well out of the scope of this list.
