Hi,
I have a fresh installation of Suse 10.3
Now I would need to connect it to my SBS-domain.
Please advise me of where to begin.
I have set up an extra user in the SBS-network. I guess I should not mind setting up a computer for the linux-person.
Thanks

No offence but how did you think a Linux box was going to join a Microsoft domain exactly?

Most likely because linux can authenticate to a windows domain and suse 10.3 provides an interface in its YaST configuration to do so. I believe it uses the samba and winbind packages to do this. That allows you to log onto your windows domain from a linux box using your windows password and access shares and printers etc.
