   I have a Linux server with 2 fileshares on it.  I will have 3 -4 windows servers that are part of my Windows2000 AD acess thoses shares. What is the best was for me to authenticate the AD users when propmted by the Linux host, AD, LDap or Radius? How can i set the linuxhost to do either or all of them?
Thanks.

Yes - Samba is the linux daemon that shares files - It also deals with authentication of Linux shares with external authentication mechanisms including LDAP. It also has limited capabilities to act as a Domain controller within an AD environment.
