Re: Win2000 and Samba

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for the help.  The server account exists in Users and Computers
under Active Directory.  I can't see where to set any password for the
account.  I've enabled everything for the server's account (cos I don't
yet understand Win2k - we'e only had it a week or so and I've just got
my hands on it.)  How do I switch it to mixed/Legacy mode?  I'm not
going to use the Linux server as a PDC in the new domain,  just a file
server. I hate Win2000 already - looking through it it seems to me
they've made it as difficult as possible for anything other than MS
stuff to connect to it, and therefore in my mind deserve everything the
DoJ chucks at them!  Surely they must realise that peoople do actually
use other OS's than Windows!  (Sorry to rant - I'm a tiny bit annoyed)
