Hello E.E., I just got a new project from my manager to create a file server. Our company uses mostly NT servers and win9x for workstations. I want to use Linux 7.1 as my OS and use Samba to share our network files. Now all the workstations run 9.x so when a user goes to Network Neighborhood will it be hard for them to put and pull files off the linux server? I want to use linux because it is more reliable than NT for me.
1. Will I need to configure the PDC or it doesn't matter what NT server I use?
2. Also when I put a file on the new linuxfileserver and has a .doc/.xls extension from a windows 98 workstation will the file be left alone or when a user pulls it down he/she will get an error message like windows doesn't recognize this file?
3. Is there any other software I need to or configure for this project?
1. If you have a PDC already, you should make your samba installation linux box part of the domain, as a member server. This means that it can use the PDC's security database to authenticate users. How
