Question how to setup a backup server for a samba PDC


Howdy to all experts out there!

I've recently setup my Linux (Redhat 8) box as a PDC (using samba) for 2 of my Windows XP PCs.

My plan is to use the Linux box for user logins, file sharing ans stuff like that and then add another PC as a backup server for my Linux box.

Any ideas how I could do it? Samba, ftp, what other options do I have?

Cheers!

Forgot to another question!

WIll the server be overworked if I have around 20 more XP boxes connected to it and also want it to handle printing services at the same time?
I have enabled roaming profiles by the way, will this furthur slow down the network?

The last time I setup a PDC server was like 2-3 years ago, and there weren't any BDC setup, it was just not possible.

But, I found this guide via google. keywords=samba bdc howto

http://us3.samba.org/samba/ftp/docs/...BDC-HOWTO.html

hope, that help.

Cheers mate!
I'll be looking at that soon!

In the mean time, I'm trying to get my XP machines to print from the Linux box. When I try to add the linux printer, I get this message in XP:
"A policy is in effect on your computer which prevents you from connecting to this print queue. blah blah blah....."

Did I missed some settings somewhere?
