Hi, what do you mean 'differences', different from what ?

if you are using Debian wheezy then you only really need these for a 
member server:

sernet-samba sernet-samba-winbind fam acl attr quota

Does nobody read the samba wiki ? Or should it be written in VERY LARGE 
print ? Don't use the DC as a fileserver.
