Hi Matt,

Thanks for that input. Exactly what I was looking for. Darn I though  
I skimmed through the docs but I guess I didn't know to look for  
Member server configuration.
And it looks like I can use winbind too! Cool :). Thought that  
winbind was only meant to work in an MS ADS environment but I guess I  
can use it in an Samba domain also.

Thanks again.
