I have tried your suggestions, and some I had found prior to falling 
back on the mailing list so I already knew some would not work. I was 
not asked for a response after being pointed to the material so I did 
not provide one.

Yes, I am very busy as I work as the lead IT and IS specialist in a 
small business. I cannot devote weeks to a single problem as I handle 
dozens a day, many resolved within 24hrs. This issue has been on-going 
due to the fact that I have already tried a ton of what is out there, 
and as for your "Google search", dozens of those are the same posts 
regurgitated on numerous sites. I went through an entire page a week or 
so back and every single link on the page was to the exact same post, on 
numerous sits that have board-readers that simply read the samba lists 
among others and duplicate the posts. Useless! I'd say out of 1.9mil 
results, about 500k are unique. I am getting to where I dislike Google 
for this reason, but that is another discussion.

I am also happy to hear that you can afford to blow thousands on a 
simple DVD. Low-income businesses, churches, and what-not cannot. Yes, 
we know of open-licensing and manage it for several clients, but many 
people are not willing to spend anything right now if there is a viable 
alternative. Seeing that S4 has worked flawlessly for two years at a few 
locations, this fit the client's needs and we installed it. Something is 
just different this time. I am learning a lot and intend to apply things 
like the group and user ID's to other domains once we have it working 
here to avoid future problems.

Also, Windows has MUCH higher resource requirements than Linux. On top 
of that $3k, how much would we have to pay to bring up the hardware? Too 
expensive for such little gain.

Finally, if you have taken some personal offense to something, speak up. 
You offered assistance, I took what I had not already tried and tried 
it. You did not ask for results, so I assumed the fact that I was still 
asking for help would have been a clue that the suggestion was no good. 
Every time anybody asked for anything, including configuration files, I 
posted them, so there's no need to be bitter. Simply point out that I 
may have missed something and I'll try it or let you know I already did.
