Actually, I seem to have it working now!  I’ll need to document 
what I did, and will have to test it again from scratch as I may 
have done one or two things which weren’t necessary etc.  The PC is 
logging onto the Debian server with no nasty warnings or errors, 
the server-side login script is working, and I can access the test 
network share.  I think it might be slightly slow to login, but it 
is an ancient test PC, and it might also be trying to do other 
things requiring a DNS server and internet connection (I’ve just 
got the test PC and Debian server on a crossover cable).

Once I have it documented I might post again to check that the 
process I’m using is good practice etc.
