Yes, for now you need to add the machine using lwat, or some otherway (I
usually prepare the machines from the command-line, using
ldapsearch | some loop | ldapadd
But that's me.
for a later version of lwat, it's planed to implement another way of
adding multiple hosts, see http://bzz.no/lwat/trac/trac.cgi/ticket/10

Give them the same name as you give them in XP. I think he named his
host "myws" or something like that.

Yes, lets collect all driveletters that people use and add them all into
our smb.conf :)

This is something you have to set up at the WS, as far as I know. Sorry,
the redmond OS is not exactly prepared to be a networked ws.

I guess I'll stop edit wikis then....
