domain controlers . In this case, i want the user to have access his home folder on linux system as well as a home folder on the windows system

First of all, you can access your folders shared on windows and linux, simultaneously while logged in to windows(assuming that both-win&Linux- are installed on the same system) what you do is:
1)Go to your Linux's
System->configuration->configure your computer (In KDE,In other Desktop environments the path may be different to configure your computer--i hope u'll be able to reach upto that point) and on the prompt shown enter your root passwd

2)Now go to Mount Points->Local disk Sharing

3)Choose All users/Custom option and then.......

4)Tick both Samba/NFS boxes

This will allow you to access (your/any other in ur network) folders from Win to Linux(Samba does this for you) and Linux to win(NFS does it 4 u)

Now go to windows and in ur browser/window manager type \\your.ip.address
(like 15.23.21.3 or your computer name ( linux name or windows one according to folder u want to access is situated in))
it would give you all folders shared on ur comp whether in Linux or in Windows.

It-most probably-should work.If not Please post ur difficulty.

Bye

sooory, my mistake. i missed out the important part. The linux and windows are present on separte sytems. What i want is to be able to logoon to the network using a widows domain controller. Alternatively, i could use samba as a NT-domain controller but in that case , how can the active directory accounts be migrated to samba..

bit confused here.

thanx for u'r time. plz loook into it. i need all the help i can get.

I am sorry of very late reply - it is my end term examinations that prevents me from visiting this site.

By the way what did you mean by:

to be able to logoon to the network using a widows domain controller. Alternatively, i could use samba as a NT-domain controller but in that case , how can the active directory accounts be migrated to samba..

Is this merely mean to access a file on network or something more?what is a domain login??
My end semester is ending on 29th of this month. So i'd be again sorry if i reply late.
Bye.
