Have been working with this idea for awhile now.  It really does a good
job with an NT based system.  Active Directory, how ever, is another
thing!  Just trying to get the graphical management piece working so
that there is the easy "User Manager" capability.  Check out the
discussion groups at

| We don't, but I have heard of several instances where people are using

such.

| Subject: Linux as a "Windows" aware file server
|
| I have been reading up on Linux and started playing around with it.
|
| I was wondering if anyone had considered or even tried, running Linux
and
| then using Samba to handle Windows workstations/files as a server in
place
| of Windows NT or 2000 Server ?
|
| Could save a TON of money. I know that many folks have already made
the
| investment in Windows Server (or Novell) so that might be a tough
sell,
| but
| in our case, NO server other than the AS/400 (well and out Cobalt Qube
2
| Linux based email server), would it be a reasonable choice (?)
|
| Thanks !
