Hi Rowland
Thanks for that but I can't reporovision. Who can? I have 150 linux, xp 
and w7 clients to support. I simply cannot start from bare metal.

To be able to do that I would have to have a reliable backup. Evidently 
neither the backup scripts in samba-master nor rsync can do that at the 
moment. (secretly hopes someone can confirm otherwise)

Anyway. Early days. Again!
