Well, certainly I wasn't planning any discussions of implementing domain
support into Samba, or the joys of opportunistic locking.  My thought was
more along the lines of "hey, Linux people, did you know you can get to
your home directory from Windows?  And even your Linux printers from
Windows?  Just type 'apt-get install samba' or 'rpm -ivh samba.rpm',
and you're all set!"

Given this, I can see that installation might be a more important hurdle
to cross.  I bow to your wisdom. :-)

I'm not necessarily withdrawing my offer to speak, though.  If it's
thought best, I'm sure I can go through a Caldera install, or discuss
the virtues of GNOME, or whatever.  Or not.
