Re: authentication from windows client
I think there's basically two approaches to this, neither trivial:
1) Set up Samba on the Linux box as a domain controller, put the Windows
boxes in that domain, and link Samba to LDAP. I recall seeing an
Samba-LDAP-PDC howto... Google for it.
2) Replace the GINA (Graphical Identification aNd Authorization) on the
Windows box(es) with an LDAP-aware one. Voids your Microsoft warranty,
I'd expect. A google shows this as promising:
