... and one last question, just out of curiosity: I understand that NT-4 
domains do not support workgroups of the form example.com the way we 
think. On the other hand, I am able to log-in from my clients on my 
example.com domain. So, in a way it seems that domains of that scheme 
are only "partly-supported"...I don't know...

  thank you again for your help.
