    I am wanting to work along this line as well.

    I have a mixture of 150 'nix and ( mostly) windose systems.

    They are all in one subnet but in different workgroups. I feel it is too big and needs to be a domain system.

    I have a DHCP server assign IP by mac. There is an internal DNS server for local web, ftp, ntp, etc. I understand that DNS can be updated via DHCP server for reverse lookup, something I am working on also.

    If you use Samba, is LDAP needed? I really do not know.

    Samba is for file and printer shares. even network printer permissions, mainly for Win systems?
    "Nix would authenticate through the server as well

    DHCP and DNS is basically for the hardware and Samba / LDAP for the users?

    horse before the cart, is there an order to build these in?

    I can find links on how to configure, most of it. I just do not get from it all what a "typical" network set-up would require. If anyone of the 4: DHCP, DNS, LDAP, Samba are duplicates of service and such.

    I almost think I have a feel for it, maybe I have it but some simple verification would go a long way and save a lot more wasted time reading the wrong things.
