I have a really, really hard time recommending Ubuntu to schools, at
all.  I can't recommend something that, as far as I know, relies
entirely on local administration.  I know I could dig through 5 files
for this but it's just annoying; for schools or the most basic
3-computer networks, Fedora Core 10 is the best recommendation I have,
because you just say "Use active directory, domain controller is xxxx"
and it works.

Am I missing somethnig here?  I'm still on 8.10, not on the betas; has
there been work to add some method for configuring Ubuntu to
authenticate via WinBind, i.e. join a domain?
