    There are lots of tutorials on basic Samba. How about an advanced one that supports a real environment?
    I'm running Linux servers that provide enterprise users on Windows with filesharing. It needs to work reliably, play well with Windows, and support end-users to support themselves as much as possible. I'm reluctant to go the Samba PDC route, so I'm hoping for a less Windows-centric solution.
    In particular, there needs to be some form of authentication that:
    - separates host users from Samba share users
    - allows web mgmt, or at least web password changes

    This might involve a MySQL (hopefully) or LDAP server for auth info, and some careful configuration to get the Windows networking working smoothly.
