    Linux providing Windows login information


    My daughter just got a new computer to use for games and what not. Note, she's nine years old. I need a way for my server to give it login information, as well as how much time she can spend on it. What is the easiest way to do so?

    Can you describe your server so that we can make suggestions?

    It is a Debian testing (latest). It is the router for the entire network. Uses DHCP for clients. I read somewhere that samba could do this, but I found no way to do it.

    Install Samba and configure it as an NT domain controller. Then, once configured, join your Windows computers to the new domain. If unfamiliar, will require additional research in order to alleviate a few headaches. http://us3.samba.org/samba/
