	If you can have the NAS as a Domain Member, where you can
define ACLs based on the PDC User List, IMHO, that should be the
way to go.

	Samba and NAS will only exchange information about who is
able to access and who isn't, instead of exchange the entire share,
at least, that's the way I understand it, and by doing that, you
would reduce the traffic in your local network. ;)

	Kind regards,
