Does this basically set up the box to be a PDC then for the Windows
machines?  So to authenticate my windows boxes I would set them to a
domain and point them here.

Once completed do the /home directories automatically mount on the
clients upon login or do users still have to manually browse the network
for these and mount them?

Thanks for the work on this guys.  I will be making very heavy use of
this during the summer months.
