I'm trying to get SAMBA working so I can browse my Mandrake box from my XP box. (It's really difficult!) Anyway, tutorials are telling me that I need a UNIX account for each person who wants to log onto linux from XP.
I've heard elsewhere that it is insecure to have "redundant" unused unix user accounts on your computer because hackers can play about in those accounts with less chance of detection.
Is it okay to just add new users and never log in to those accounts, just use the accounts for SAMBA access?
