Re: [K12OSN] Samba, XP, and login scripts....

 I had to add the following to my smb.conf file in the globals section:

add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g machines -c 'Machine
Account' -s /bin/false -M %u

I also created the group machines and jumped through all kinds of hoops to
get XP to login to a domain in the network properties section.( Actually not
all that bad, but different.)

I treads the same login script as the 98 boxes.
