I only started on the server yesterday. At the moment, I'm still 
installing RPMs that are needed for general server utilization. I 
haven't installed the Sernet RPMs yet. I want to harden it before I get 
started on Samba. I'm hoping once I get Samba installed, it'll make a 
little more sense and answer some of my "obvious" questions.

For now, though, I'm not sure what our Windows guy wants done. And by 
the way, I'll need to look up what GPO means. The way you describe it, 
meaning group preferences, it sounds like what we had in mind.
