How would the sernet packages differ from the compiled version? Doesn't 
it give me mostly the same executables?

OK, I'm almost certain what I used for the interactive answers were not 
correct. How would I start over?

Regardless of how bad the "Using Samba" book might be for a Samba 4 
implementation, it does provide very good information about what Domains 
are and how they are viewed (at least for me, the Windows Domain idiot). 
I don't mean to argue.

I feel sort of guilty for using the list as a learning tool. There just 
isn't much out there other places.
