Notes on setting up SAMBA

Adding New Users

See Adding Users though the useradd command seems to have changed a bit, so the following worked for me:
orion:~# useradd -d /home/auser -s /bin/false auser
orion:~# passwd auser
Enter new UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: password updated successfully
orion:~# smbpasswd -a auser
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
Added user auser.
Then the user was able to login to the Windows Domain (controlled by the SAMBA 3 server) as "auser" and Windows XP did the usual setting up of a new desktop.
