well i tried samba 2.2.5 a few months ago and it still lacked support
for stuff i was interested in ..samba-tng had more. the main things
were domain groups, which samba had no support for, and trust
relationships were iffy(the code at the time was not documented to
work but i found a way to use it by doin some googlin' the developers
were suprised that it worked :) but samba was unable to maintain
a trust relationship since it did not support the random passowrd
changes nt does during the trust). but samba does have basic
domain support, systems can join a domain, and participate ..but
more then that isn't as good as -tng from my experience(I haven't
tried samba's HEAD branch ...)

yeah...scary..id rather do it the other way around with LDAP
authentication and have the win32 machines log into a samba PDC
with a LDAP backend ...which is what i'm tryin to do(pretty good
success sofar ..)
