Multiple logins from XP to Samba

I have 20 computers in my lab and 300 users. I want the users to be able to access their shares on the classroom Linux server. I have install Samba and it's working for my login. I wondering if the only way to have my students login at any computer in the lab is to create users on all xp boxes that I have created in Samba.

That would be a lot of work.

You need to set samba up as a domain controller and setup roaming profiles. Have a look through the docs at
