i did this morning..i finally got my passwd change from windows
working..too much garbage in my smb.conf..particularly extra unix passwd
sync=yes unnecessary and screwing up the works..plus passwd chat line..
building three new servers and putting a fourth on line today..had a night
mare with kdm ..took forever to go from grayscreen/x to login..because rhel
4 by default loads ipv6 module...
