What about simply creating linux users and groups.  I intend to have each
user get a home dir and allow them to host a personal webpage (which I
understand is quite easy with apache).  Therefore wouldn't having them as
linux users make sense?  If I did do this, what do I do to authenticate
users on the other file servers in my network that currently use winbind to
authenticate.  I don't really want to have to create users multiple times.
