Dear Sir/Madam:

I have installed the redhat linux enterprise version 5 , have 120 users need to setup samba as pdc ( authentication server)  plus resource sharing at this point have no knowledge on LDAP but think still smaba server can be configured  please tell me how to configure samba as PDC without LDAP

1. for 150 users is it suggested samba as PDC ( with out LDAP)
2. we outsource the work to home users for them it is an ftp account the same work should be quality checked in the my lan ( quality department in the office) when thefiles uploded by the home users through the ftp to their home directory this should be accessible by the quality team in the office as samba share

Please suggest me also help me how to configure this .

Thanks in advance.
