G'day Gayathri

Thanks very much, that reference clarified a few things. I had read the 
Samba How-To, and referenced my books here. But had not quite found the 
scenario I was looking for, and got a tad lost. It has so many wonderful 
applications, especially when you have added LDAP and Kerberos to the mix.

I did finally get it to show me all the shares under one Domain last 
night. Which is what I want. Now I just have to fix up the ldap so that 
admin users have home directories on Homer 1 and the students home 
directories are on Homer 2 and I"m set I think.

Just to be sure, I've started on the Samba by Example but it is 600+ 
pages. But wonderful pages they are.........;-)
