Hallo, stefano,

No - that's at least impossible for private machines.
Our school machines can show such a screen via autostart (or something  
like this).

If I have understood the relations (and I'm not sure): you don't need  
"winbind" if you only use a samba server (and no microsoft server).

> Which proxy server do you have?

We use squid - works fine.

> Did you configured also pam for the login?

No - we use slackware as base distribution, and slackware doesn't need  
pam. But if I have understood the special pam scripts and configuration  
files: may be you don't need to change them.

It's really a quite simple configuration: the server runs samba, and  
samba has an smb domain (p.e. WORKGROUP) and some shares. The clients  
run some application which can mount samba shares. And the user of the  
client must have a linux-/samba account on the server, for logging in,  
for own shares ("home"), for shared shares ("public") etc.

Viele Gruesse!
