This is funny, Ray.  I also have a wiki page on using SerNet's version
of samba.  I debated if I should have pasted it in my earlier email...I
should have followed my instincts:


Hope that helps out on the RHEL 4 front.  Most of our Solaris installs
are either pure krb5 or just standalone, so we never looked at
it...especially in light of the group membership limits, etc.
