Question Business type setup


I'm setting up some computers to be a "corporate" type network, and I'm wondering what the commonly accpeted practices currently are.

I've installed quite a few NT/2000 networks where you do the standard log into a domain (have a pdc and bdc) and setup file shares on the server so people can store their documents remotely, yada, yada, yada.

I'm curious to know what the standard is for Linux. This will be for a group of non-technical users.

Is setting up a PDC with samba a "standard" thing?

Thanks in advance,

This type of question really only relates on how you want to run the system. If you have a mix of machines, sure using Samba would work to share between the Windows and Linux machines.
In Linux you can setup a standard server for all users access, file sharing.. etc.. Probably what your looking at is setting up NIS within Linux for that.
But there are many many ways to set something like this up, just depends on how really you the admin or company wants it to operate.
