That they have 2003Server at the old school is my suspicion.   I'll go check
out the SSLexplorer and see what I can do.

I thought I had my hands full re-figuring out how to make smbldap work on my
fat client edubuntu workstations and ubuntu server.  This adds fuel to the
fire -- I only have 6 weeks til school starts.  Yikes!  If I had no other
clients, it wouldn't be so bad.

Thanks for the advice.
