Re: [K12OSN] Anyone tried smbldap installer with Centos 5 ??



I've got a nice empty test box setup on the bench with all the Centos disk
ready to have a go one Monday.

I'm starting with a basic i386 install before I move to the actual servers
that I'm going to use the x86_64 version on

I'll let you know how I get on.
