I followed a simple setup for ubuntu to run samba and openldap which I 
then enabled roaming users from winXP machines... it works great.

now I'm trying to implement this same system on a debian etch system 
only now I want more security, where the ubuntu setup had none

The Debian server will act like an Active Directory and contain all the 
file/print/roaming user info and shares locally.

I apologies for keeping it short, but I just need vague direction...   :)
