Linux ;-) (Debian 4)

And Windows (XP, 2000) as clients in the PDC domain.

Thank you, I already thought about this option but this is somehow not 
fine-granulating enough for me. First, it should control the *login* on 
the samba domain controller.
Second, it would be fine to set groups for each workstation which are 
allowed to login on this workstation (or - as by default - all are allowed).

Best regards,
