So reading this, I assume that noone uses samba as a simple  
authentication/gateway to network shares for windows machines. Since  
you are limited to sharing local volumes on the PDC? How would I go  
about setting up a passthrough for my machines to the actual  
fileserver? Do I setup clients on the file server? do I have samba  
point them with credentials to the file server?
