Dunno much about the NFS thing - except Coda sounds cool, but I haven't
really heard of it being used in a production environment yet!

Yup! And it's a CVS version of Samba from a few months ago! Things should
be working a lot better now - only problem that appears during normal
usage is that sometimes the NT workstations complain that they can't find
any domain controller and then use the cached profile - has only ever
happened when there's already been a cached profile there! And it rarely
happens - should update to a newer CVS version and see what it's like :)
Works fine otherwise - except for some dodgy bits with NT administration
tools. But who needs them :)
So basically, get the latest CVS using
cvs -d :pserver:cvs at samba.anu.edu.au:/cvsroot co samba
and then follow the NTDOM FAQ at
That's really all there is to it... good luck! :)

It might look like I'm doing nothing, but at the cellular level I'm
really quite busy.
