OK guys her is the problem.

i am going to setup a domain with windows 2003 and have 20 to 60 users.
Anyways i can setp the server no problem it will work it all done.

now i want to add a second server. Not necessarilly a backup server. It will have fedora core 5 on it.

I want the linux machine to be able to authenticate users as well.

so lets say if the windows machine is down the linux machine can still let people login into their account. the only thing the users will lose is the resources on the linux machine.

but i don't know how to do that with the linux machine setup.
please help.

thanks

That is good strategy, and can be done by using samba, just configure samba as domain controller and let it auth with windows server.

just make sure you have latest samba version, and if you have problems you can post on the linux admin TA

here are some links that might help:
