Re: [K12OSN] Samba/Windows XP Professional



Right. Sorry, for the inaccuracy.  Win9x machines do not join the
domain--hence they have no problems in that area.  It's only a matter of
creating user accounts for individuals to log into the domain when they use
Win9x machines as domain clients...

NT, 2000, and XP are another matter.  Machine accounts are created in those
cases.

The main message behind my posting is you CAN join XP (NT, and Win2K)
machines to a SAMBA PDC quite easily...
