Try this

First off, it's not Linux 7.2 -- it's probably SUSE Linux 7.2; Linux itself is just the kernel... kind of like "it's a '68 Chev" - great but what model of car? :-)

You need to familliarize yourself with SAMBA - it is the system that connects you to the world of Windows networking. In particular you need to join the domain, just as any Windows machine does. This is accomplished with the smbpasswd command.

To wit: smbpasswd -j DOMAINNAME (as root)

'man smbpasswd' will give you more information.

(there may be some SUSE-specific way to do this but if you really want to know how it's done this is the way)

Arrogant and condescending comments don't help. Your input is helpful, keep it up.....minus the comments.

I don't think he was being condecsending. He was being helpful. There are SuSe 7.2, Mandrake 7.2, and RedHat 7.2. Each has different tools and methods of doing things. The kernel in each one is a different version also. So it is very helpful to know which version you are running. Much in the same way that just saying "Windows" isn't much info. It took me a while to realize if I wanted specific help I ahd to be specific in the information I provided. I am reasonably new to the NIX world, but learn something new every day.
