I would my Samba server machine to act as the PDC for NT4.0 clients. From what I've read this is not fully implemented but it's possible. The extent that I need it is to be able to "collect" all the machines into a domain, instead of a workgroup for remote administration. Can Samba do this, and if so how do I go about setting it up?
Thanks
