    Need help setting up Linux domain server

    Ok guys, my dad has been busting my balls about a Linux domain server for a year now. I need to get 3-4 Linux machines and 1-2 XP boxes logging to a domain server runnig SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8.

    I know a lil bit about setting up samba, but that is about as far as my knowlege about networking goes. I need to know where to start. I have been googling aroud but I am just plain stupid when it comes to reading documentation.

    First question: Where do I start? I need some hands-on advice here. And plz don't tell me just to RTFM or I'll kick you in the nuts :P

    TIA,

    Janne

    RTFM

    EDIT: you asked for it... lol, nah, i dunno where to say to start except for installing samba and then reading smb.conf, it should be well commented. Otherwise if you don't wanna go that route I think you can do it with webmin.

    Well, Janne's gonna kick Maccorin in the nuts now. Any chance of kicking down a .avi of that? Maybe make it into a short movie (Linux Geeks Clash I: The Bloodletting)? :w00t:

    OilyFish, that's a great link. That's also the University I'm attending in September for grad school. I wonder if I could track that guy down and give him props for his efforts...

    *Kicks maccorin in the nuts with a mae-geri as hard as he can*

    So Samba can get the job done. I'll look into that, thanks mac.

    AFAIK samba is the _only_ way to do it (short of writing your own program to do it)

    I have been browsing some samba docs and it seems that what I want to do is a Primary Domain Conroller. SLES8 came with some nice pdf manuals so I'm pretty confident I can get it up and running sooner or later. Plus Dad called some old guru friend of his to come and have a look at it too.
