The question is vague, the 'or somthing' obscures the real question which is 'Can I make Linux (Samba) run an NT domain and hence use domain authenticated logins on Win95'

Actually it will be a while before I expect you will see this functionality as MS have not released the protocol (So far as I am aware).

Actually, to an extent, SAMBA does it.
I found out today. It is in 'domain.txt' in the docs
directory.
