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... :)
