[K12OSN] Samba/OpenLDAP or MS ADS (or maybe NDS)...



OK, we are finally going to replace our WindowsNT domain which is our current 
authentication method for Windows and LTSP clients. I am currently evaluating 
the options. I have a couple of specific questions regarding the 
Samba/OpenLDAP solutions.
First, the following I believe are correct statements. Please let me know if I 
am wrong on any of them
Samba / Open LDAP will:
1) Allow computers running Windows XP Prof to 'join the domain'
2) Authenticate users logging in from Windows XP Prof. clients.
3) Handle providing a logon script to Users logging on From Windows XP Prof 
clients
4) Handle mapping to profile server for roaming profiles for Windows XP Prof 
clients


But, my question is how do you handle group policies. Is anyone aware of a 
tool that will create/apply proper group policy files to use as part of this 
Samba / OpenLDAP solution? If not, how are you handling policies? Is it 
working satisfactorily for you?
