Is there any clear manual for domain network between linux and windows (not a workgroup) ?

If your users are always going to sit at the same "terminals" you
might not need a domain, just nix/samba accounts on your server as
well as some samba shares and an ftp setup for your XP user.

If your users are going to sit at random desks and you need network
logins or if you absolutely want to have a domain, you should  refer
to's documentation and possibly read a relatively long
exchange that I had with another ubu-usr member in November/December
about his Samba domain setup.

I will search for the thread later and post it.
