    I know these are Tivo forums, but I have to give my 2 cents.

    This is something he should have won years ago. I've used Samba in my work environment(s) for almost 10 years now. It's the single most important piece of software I have ever used. I have used it in almost every form possible, including as a PDC (Primary Domain Controller). It has allowed me to replace the functionality of a Windows domain controller for the grand total cost of ZERO. I've even used it in my home environment.

    Congratulations!
