AD authentication on Samba 3

Hi,

I am trying to set up a samba file server on fedore core. I want to have a shared folder which can be accessed only by win2k AD users and they should be able to change permissions for files they create!
Samba should take account information from AD when needed (I don't want make account duplicates on Linux!)

can you help

I think this is a good start for you but i sugest that you read the following:
man smb.conf
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/SMB-HOWTO.html

#Start
[global]
   workgroup = MYGROUP
   netbios name = LINUX
   interfaces = (ips to listen to f.ex. 192.168.0.0/24)
   encrypt passwords = Yes
   security = server
   password server = (net bios name)
   log level = 0
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   max log size = 50
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
   dns proxy = No
   hosts allow = (ips of the host to alow)  
   preserve case = No
   short preserve case = No

[Company]
   comment = Company share
   path = /export/samba/company
   writable = yes
   printable = no
   hosts allow = (ips of the xp host)  
   create mode = 0755
   directory mode = 0755
# End

Hi,

I am not sure, but I think a better solution would be to use:
security = ads,
but then I get lost with the installation of kerberos.

can you tell which one is better?
