Linux in LAN

hi ,

I am a newbie in the Linux Networking.
I am introducing Linux machines to my LAN with Windows2003 domain.
I am able to browse the shared files in this linux machine from other windows and linux machines.
But from the linux machine i am not able to login to the domain server and so i am not able to access other windows machines.
I installed Samba and is able to access the windows shared folders from Samba Client.

Do i need more installations?

Can any one help me overcome this situation?

Thanks in advance,

You need to use winbindd and pam with samba. linux magazine has a nice artical on how to do it.

You might have to register with the site to view the artical.

Linux magazine has a lot of useful articals. Jeremy also contributes articals to them.

I made a short and sweet how to, but a lightning stike took out my internet connection so my server is down for a day or so.
