I thick I need a Windows computer now.
I've been playing with Samba as a PDC lately and I need to test out my how my settings will work on Win2k computers. If everything turns out, I'll be switching our server from a WinNT 4 to Mandrake 10.0 with Samba.
I found an online O'Reilly Samba book included with Mandrake. It's been really helpfull. http://www.comcol.nl/detail/48349.htm
I guess I could set up one of my other Linux boxes up to log in on the test server, but I still wouldn't know if the finer details are fine.
But in either case, I could always reformat that Windows machine back into something more usefull.
