There are such directories on the net for users. I have not looked in to
how they could be mounted. As it turns out, the users here log in to
their Windows systems via Novell Client for Windows. I know that on
their Windows boxes that is how they get these additional drives. I have
used the Novell Client for Linux, but I am unclear how to fit all that

- unique uids on all Linux workstations.

We have thousands of users in the Active Directory. I really do not want
all of them to have access. In the LDAP entry, there is a OU= field for
those I want to be able to log in. Is it possible to limit login to
those in some specified OU= ?

See the ldap setting examples from the samba-doc package in

Plus the explanations in the smb.conf man page.

Will do. Thanks for the pointer.
