To start things, I realise what I have is a sort of strange construction. But I'm just trying things and am curious if what I want is possible and hope you can give me some advice.
I have a Windows 2000 DHCP and DNS server, and a SuSE Linux 8.2 web, mail and ftp server. Next, I have two clients both running Windows 98 or XP (undecided). And I would like to log in using my Linux accounts. I am not interested in using Samba because I'd like to use my FTP service instead.
I read NIS or LDAP are things I could try, but I'm not sure. Am I taking a completely wrong approach here?
