All I know about the wonders of SMB I know from the Samba docs so I'm
not sure exactly what our NT box was/is. All I know was that the Samba
boxes reported it as the "current master browser" and everything worked
ok once you told the win9x clients to look at our local domain for
password auth. (so I guess the NT box was a domain controller)
All the Linux boxes were authenticating off the NT box(security-server)
and Samba was able to see the NT box but the Windows boxes weren't so
the Linux boxes recognising the NT server was pretty useless.. :)
I really don't fancy hacking the registry to force plaintext password :(
