Most of the wiki was written by Marc Muehlfeld, he (as far as I am
aware) uses Centos, so the wiki should be relevant to fedora.

The setup of these could be improved on the wiki, care to help by
posting your files ?

And it was totally unnecessary, the defaults for ext4 are what the
page you linked to advised adding.

You do not need to bother, take it from me, you do not need to
alter /etc/fstab if you are using ext4.

Samba comes with a built-in kerberos server, this uses Heimdal. The
red-hat world uses MIT and they want to use this with Samba and a lot
of work is going on to make this happen. Once this work is complete,
Samba will move to using MIT instead of Heimdal.
