Replacing windows xp with ubuntu on network


Hi All

I want to save some money in the office and instead of paying windows I want to use Ubuntu.

I know of way to add ubuntu to a windows server and I have recently installed a ClearOs box as a domain controller out of the box to add xp machines to. can anyone tell me how I would get an Ubuntu desktop machine to authticate for shares and login with my clearos box which is based on Centos.

If I can get this done, I can loose the windows machine and use zimbra as well instead of exchange.

Thanks

Glenn

You should demo this whole setup before you switch over. Make sure that everything works before getting rid of any existing architecture.

Good idea on Zimbra, I used that a couple of years ago. Must be far better now than it was.
