Smile How to make a Windows XP machine a member of NIS domain Server on RHEL?


Hi Guys,

I have configured NIS, DNS, NFS and DHCP servers at my home network.
I can easily authenticate another Linux machine to these servers and make that machine as a client and also users can locin using the automounter.

My Question is, is it possible that by using the same setup I can authenticate a windows Xp machine and make it as a client, and also users can login using the passwords that I have provided on my NIS server?

If this can be done, can some guide me through the initial steps that I need to follow.

Thanks for your help in advance

Regards,
Naman

Not really a "Linux" question, is it? If you've got NIS up and running, but can't get Windows systems on it, that's a question better suited to a Windows/Microsoft forum.

And if you tried to look on MS's own site:
