Hai, wanted to be there, but cant, grand parent thingy. 

So what i wanted to say, aka my suggestion, in advanced. 

Howto install samba ( basis ) 
- from source - source howto. 

- from distro - types distros - howtos
		   - Debian/Ubuntu ( debian based/ example Mint )
				- Debian/ubuntu samba ( And backports ) 
				- Sernet samba 
		   - Centos/Red-hat
		   - OpenSuse

(basic, installed?)

choose setup
- > what kind of setup.
	-> single server	-> setup time,dns,dhcp? 
	-> multiple DC	-> setup time,dns,dhcp servers ( for example, dhcp with failover, multimaster dns (BIND9_DLZ), 2 time servers ) 
	-> Member server	-> 
	-> Print server	-> 
	-> Domain Join in samba	  -> 
	-> Domain Join in windows -> 

- Extra software working with samba.
	- openXchange
	- zafafa
	- some other lots used examples.

remove the full path in the commands ( aka /usr/local/bin ) from samba-tool 
now we can use the example commands in any distro. 

This is how i'm writing my documentation. 

and a "just" samba howto is nice, but we need to handle the dhcp/time and dns also in the howto.
or at least some good examples so users know howto setup.
