Hi People

Sofar i'm running OpenAFS + Linux clients with very few problems.
Everything is working nicely, and i'm real pleased with the system.

But now it's time to add Windows XP clients too and i'm not so sure
how to to this.  If somebody could give me some good pointers it would be
very welcome.

As far as i know:
* I cannot use the Windows AFS client because i need countless local XP 
* I therefor have to use SAMBA as an AFS gateway
* I need windows roaming profiles
* and a NT domain
* with plain text passwords

Correct? ( I'm no windows buff.)

TWiki.afslore mentions several flavours of samba,  'samba --with-pam', 
'samba --with-afs', 'ksamba', etc.
Which one should i pick? The server side runs on RedHat 9 exclusively.

Is it possible at all to have a stable configuration with this setup?

Any and all help is much appreciated,
