    What exactly do you hope to accomplish by doing that? If it's just the user names you want, I don't hink that's possible, to be honest. (Of course it's _possible_, but not without some serious hacking)

    God... Really, what about that drunk button? Wasn't it ever coming to be reality?

    two words.

    Samba Server.

    I suspect its not going to be the solution you are looking for though....

    I think there is a pam module that can auth against samba so you could use domain logins on your box.

    I'm sure there is. However, please note that even if you install it, you'll still need to add passwd entries for each user to get a valid UID setup.

    smbpasswd -j DOMAIN_NAME -r PDC_NAME -Uusername
    It will then prompt for a password, the account used must have admin rights.

    I would suggest reading O'reillys Using Samba, it is a good book and will help you greatly if you wish to fully integrate your machine in an smb/cifs enviroment.

    Look at the SAMBA howto on:

    http://www.utterberg.com under howtos on how to connect your samba installation to the NT/2000 domain.
